Try to take the pictures at eye level.
One thing some of us don't notice. The natural canopy of a Chinese elm is as round as a lollipop. Don't style it with a narrow apex like a pine tree. I got beat up for this here.

Do you leave these trees in their pots in winter?

I trust your basement is cold enough for them to go dormant. Otherwise you are asking for trouble. When they go dormant, the leaves will turn yellow & eventually fall off. They won't need light until spring.
