Hello Arkadius.
Lovely blackthorn.
The virtual is a logical choice and could in the end always been done but i would give the lower long dead branch a chance as a yn.
You could get an exceptional tree.
Cutting that long branch would definite leave any resemblance behind of the shrub the Prunus Spinosa is
and give you the image of an old and compact tree.
It is a difficult choice, if you can not stand the designstress, just cut it of.

I like the second photo. Prunus Spinosa's trees they hang the branches by the weight of the fruit, small but abundant.

I think I'd avoid making the tree look like the virtual image. That is a picture of a "bonsai" -- not of a plum tree. You need something other than a tall triangle shape.

Do you have a specific idea
?

Nope, other than untangling the criss-crossing branches -- probably by pruning.

WOuld this be too much reduction? Back to a few branches, the tips of which are weighed down by the weight of fruit?

I think that would be fine. Then be very selective of where you allow new branches to pop and rub o9ut all unwanted ones.
