Where do cleats go on mountain bike shoes?

Are my cleats too far forward?

Too far forward will overload the lower leg muscles, similar to standing on your toes for a long period, whilst too far back will strain the upper leg muscles. Both scenarios will fatigue the localized areas, often resulting in pain and cramping, and significantly reduce the power transferred during the pedal stroke.
