Mate you need to be closer than the front door when taking a photo at the rear of the house.
take 2 photo's, 1 of each window, standing at about middle of window and probable about 2 - 2.5m out, so the area is question is clearly visible

Thanks for your feedback.
I only have these photos which I received from the seller. In general, I observed following with zoom of the original photo
1. Jamb stud is not continuous from the bottom plate to the top of the lintel.
2. There is only single jamb stud for window opening of size 3000mm with a floor height of 3.6m
3. Lintel is installed just below the top plate.
4. Lintel and Lintel trimmer are not span to the same opening
I could not find such installation as illustrated on Figure 6.9 (in part) Openinggs of AS-1684-2-2010
Lintel breadth/depth D/2 = 42mm
Stud depth D= 90mm
The lintel is not extended beyound jamb stud to connect to common stud (in photo case, there are multiple studs) to match as Figure 6.9 (b) Lintel breadth less than or equal to half stud depth
The lintel is installed directly below top plate to match Figure 6.9 (e) but there is no secondary jamb stud and jamb stud as shown.

Sure. Focusing on the window at the back, as joists are loading onto this lintel and not the other windows:
FLW calculated by the distance between the lintel and the next support point, which appears to be the stud wall, divided by 2. Not sure if there's an intermediate beam between these two points, too hard to tell from the photo. If there is, take the distance from lintel to beam and divide by 2.
