Hi All,
This picture was taken right after the tree was styled. The second picture i enhanced the pic by overlaying a pot. This is a buffalo juniper. I had never heard of that type of juniper until I stumbled onto it. Although after I researched it online I saw that it is a very common juniper used in business landscaping. Thank you ahead for you critique and comments.

It will be a very nice tree. If it were mine, I would completely eliminate that topmost branch, as if feels unnecessary. Not even a jin.

Hi

It is a good material I think, and you've done it the basic style, if I want it made a bonsai, my practice is to be pulled to its roots more, and to develop its thick leaves.
Simulated pictures for your reference.
