Looks normal to me. Typically the outermost frames will be honey, then honey and pollen, then a couple frames in, brood. I don't see honey or nectar in the brood frames, you should be seeing eggs or very small larvae after the brood emerges.
I am with Vance...Is this colony queen rite? Is there larvae in the open comb? This hive is far from honey bound. I suspect the frames of honey came from the outside couple frames (actually 1 and 4 are duplicates)? I am thinking I see eggs/young brood in pics 2 & 3 in the cells...am I??? If there is larvae/eggs/etc in the brood frames, then you are right on track. If those inner cells are empty...you may have other problems. Honey bound is not one of them.
Where are the bees? Are these frames typical to the population of the hive? :s
