When you see it like this there's nothing obvious that jumps out as different.  Scroll down

Can't help wondering if it would be a good idea to get the apex over the centre of the base of the trunk?  Here's the original pic from Kohaku:

Does this now look like it is a bit too far over to the left?

I don't think its better.....also the rootsystem doesn't allow to change the angle a lot.

Great to see the progress and fulfilment of your vision. I have a similarly thick trunk lifted and boxed up but have not yet started styling, as it seems to lack vigour. Going to up the feeding regime this year.

A couple of pics just taken before it goes dark. For scale, it's planted in the bottom of a cut off 50 gallon drum. Not the best place to photograph it as it is between a lot of other developing material, but it's too heavy to move!Giant Japanese maple project  - Page 3 20180219

I agree, from that picture the left image is the better one.  

But if I was going to be completely obsessive about it I'd say the point half way between the 2 images is what I'd regard as perfect?  

But that's irrelevant, as this tree is pretty perfect as it is!
