Because I'm dial-up it takes forever for pictures to load so I haven't seen the pictures yet but just a note here--dbrown's tips were good except that I don't recommend taping the tip of the ear first--too often that will leave the ear slipping just a little in the course of the posting which is unfortunately a way to end up with pockets which you'll then have to get rid of.
I always tape from the bottom first--whether you are taping all the way to the tip (not just rings) or taping three places (bottom, middle and tip).
And if you did put a brace in with duct tape--you should be using the same tape you are using on the post and on the taping--Johnson & Johnson (either Zonas or Coach Sports) tape.
Duct tape is a disaster if it isn't also covered with a breathable tape--many dogs turn out to be allergic to either the adhesive or to the plastic backing--or both--I've seen some horrid infections under duct tape that was used because someone thought it would stick better. Neither side of it should be against the dogs skin.
PS A couple of the pictures finally loaded and I agree with Greenkouki that even though the ears are somewhat wide--it's by far from the worst crop I've ever seen and when he's grown up they'll look just fine--looks like they are going to stand pretty quickly and easily too.
