I like very much the post of your figs before and after defoliation.  Foliage often hides a lot of sins.

In the case of your retusa - which is a very nice tree - I have a few suggestions which you might like to consider.  In my opinion the tree has  2 apexes.
I would remove the one at the left ( see image below) . The remaining branches on lower left hand side can be re-wired to form the  lower branch. The other apex has very nice taper and could be bent fo the left as indicted.  Lastly I would make the tree a bit more compact by cutting back the remaining foliage as indicated.  Regards Hank
