Huh?! Shocked Different species, different climate, more than one way to skin the cat.
Here in the Northeast US, we are taught vociferously that you only repot larches in early spring, just when the buds are barely starting to open. I killed my first larch by repotting it two weeks later.

I think the first branch on the left needs more movement, it's too straight for me.

The trunk and the rest of the branches are quite wavy, so i think it would look more coherent if it were a bit more twisted. I would also remove a few branches, and shorten others too.

But who am I to say that ?... Very Happy

I don't think Pavel meant repotted today. Not judging by the moss anyway. I think its a photo taken today of the tree in its new pot.
Would still like to see that branch removed Pavel. Very Happy
Any bending tried on a thick branch like this would look to contrived. The next branch up would make a good replacement if left to extend maybe.

Thanks to all for your comments, suggestions and comments on the further development of the tree. Yes, everything is possible. If it were my tree, I tried to give a distinctive profile on the left branch. I certainly would not remove. Maybe in the future a little abbreviated. Very Happy

Hi Iris, it writes Will. The tree now I only take pictures when I was visiting a client. He transplanted the tree into a new pot at the end of March. Even here in our country is not good Larch replant now.

Best regards Pavel

Larch

Hi Pavel, as always great work,I agree that the left hand branch should be
removed /jin apart from anything else its thicker than the branches below
it,can I also suggest the bottom branch crossing the trunk that has some
character twists be placed to the left as the first branch but not straight out
at 90 degrees but at the same flow as the rest of the branch work,only a
thought hope you dont mind ThumbsUp

besr regards Alex e Bagpiper
