Since you say "any comments welcome", I really enjoy the work and texture on the deadwood and jin. I am not crazy about the one on top however. It just doesn't match the movement in the rest of the tree. I would recommend removal or major reduction, but I cede that it is much easier to remove than it is to put back on, so take your time with the decision. Great tree overall in that I would proudly display on my bench if I had a bench; Mine are all on the ground right now Sad

Thanx lads Smile
Those jins are one of the things that might change, the shape of them or reduction/removal in time.
For the time being I will keep them and we´ll see what hapens next.

i see what fancy plants (dang - i forget your name - sorry) means now... maybe if that top jin didnt rear back like a horse before leaping forward, it would be maybe better and flow more... but that is only an opinion of a viewer and it is the artist/owner's view that counts the most... (something we all, myself included, need to remember Wink )

I really like number 2 & 3, nice future ahead for both.

To my eye, number 1 is a bit contrived. The ''upside down'' placement of the foliage strikes me as artificial. The natural nature of the juniper to grow upwards. The tree will ''correct'' this appearance over time if you don't actively intervene. But this is my taste.

I really do like that you created 3 distinctly different trees from relatively similar starting material. You have a good eye, and experimentation is good. Many, sometimes myself included will create the same tree over and over again. Well done.

Thanx Leo Smile

I try hard to come up with something slightly different everytime I style a tree. Sometimes it works and sometimes not - many times I see that it is not working only after some time passes as my "bonsai eye" evolves Smile
So there might be some changes on some trees as time goes by...

Mimo,

I like your trees very much, very good work.

Question about the first juniper - (sorry if I missed this info) - how much time between collection and the first major styling? (You are able to really keep your trees vigorous.)

Thank you,

augustine
