Welcome to the forum!

\begin{figure}[H] is fundamentally bad. Don't use it. That causes bad page breaks and undesired white space because of the forced figure placement. Allow LaTeX to move the figures to optimal positions. The have reference numbers just because it's common in books that figures are somewhere near but not strictly here.

Perhaps use \begin{figure}[!htbp] instead, that's the most flexible placement near to the position in the code.
