Although i'm not a high elf player i do have som suggestions. Hope it'll help!
you should really consider DP's. you could swap the SH's for the DP's.
take off 5 swordmasters of your block of 15. they really do not need that extra rank as they really will slice anything to pieces. they do not need that +1 rank bonus. take either 3 or 6 extra spearmen/elves ranking the unit 3 by 6 or 3 by 7. this will give you a stunning 18/21 attacks on the turn you are charged, which should make it almost impossible to break the first turn. you may also want to consider taking a BSB in your army.
Totally agree with JJB, you need more spearmen, they really need all the static combat resolution they can get now, so 20 or 24 is what I normally aim for. Could also give them the Warbanner.
I think that I would drop 1 swordmaster in the unit of 15 to make it 14 (2x7), I think htat I would also switch the Silver Helms out for Dragon Princes, but that is up to you.
thanks for ur replies guys, i'll try them next battle
something like this?:
Armour of Caledor
Vambraces of Defence
Gem of Courage
Ring of Fury
Seerstaff of Saphery
7 dragon princes: 260
12 swordmasters: 225
Banner of Ellyrion
12 swordmasters: 210
3 Bolt Throwers

It looks good, I think that I would change the 12 spears into 10 Seagaurd with shields.
This will support you army better, 12 spears are useless IMO.
As for the list couple of things
If you are only inc. the 12 Spears to meet the 2+ core requirement then drop them and take another 10 Archers instead. Spears in anything less than 20 is a waste of time
Dragon Princes should be OK with 5 models and without Command Group.
If you give DP Command Group give them the Banner of Ellyrion as they will benefit more from it.
I find smaller blocks of Swordmasters far better run them in groups of 8 with a BladeLord but nothing else.
Think you need something else to boost your numbers as the SM will get shot to shreds and with 5+ AS will not last long so you need other units to screen them behind, i.e., like a big unit of Spears or cavalry.
If you can get an Amulet of Light in their somewhere so a unit has magical attacks to counter etheral units.

Posting totals of units with upgrades is OK, as long as no specific cost is posted.
