Great trunk Andre. I would move the foliage closer to accentuate that trunk.

Nice start. You might consider something like this:

i worked this tree with nick lenz a couple of time he said it reminds him of trees you would see in the grand canyon. but i would actually like to graft other foliage on to the tree but to be honest i'm considering selling this tree to make some room on the benches

This tree looks really good.  It's got a great trunk and you've done some nice work on branch placement.  I hear you though, about that foliage.  San Jose's lend themselves well to more naturalistic styles, if you keep the original foliage and develop the tree with that.
I really love these things because they build trunk wood pretty fast, and are almost 'bomb-proof' when pushed hard in styling work or kept in less than optimal, horticultural conditions.  But, those well groomed, perfectly symmetrical, 'Shimpaku Poodle Pads' just ain't gonna happen with an all-original, scrappy ol' San Jose' juniper as bonsai material to work with, I'm afraid.  Rolling Eyes
