It's hard to tell from just one photo. The trunk seems to be very good, but it looks like your tree has some awkward lines in it. For instance, the large branch on the left is too big, too straight. I wound consider cutting that way back and using it as a cutting and make it it's own bonsai. Also on the right side the branch has an 90 degree bend in it. It looks very unnatural and takes away from what seems to be a very nice trunk. Another big thing is what appears to be a very straight central trunk/branch right in the middle of it all. It's hard to tell what's going on there, but in this photo it doesn't look too good. Would you post more pictures from every angle to get a better look?

Here is what I see...


Don't be afraid to cut back hard and start branches over when you have elements that don't work. It may feel like you are cutting off so much of the tree, but they are parts that will never look right. It's better to fix the problem now and go from there.


Thanks,
Ed

Ed thanks for instance. I'll take more pics from diferent angles then i'll post and will be waiting for you. do you think that i shoud cut off now? i agree with the 90 degree. There's some dead wook on it from behind.
