Hi Jun,
Regarding the fine and slim trunk, I would do something lighter, almost a litterati and I would also choose a pot a little less higher.

Jun,
I understand it could be difficult for you to cut those branches, but it's just my point of view Very Happy
I thought of litterati because of your second pic, the movement of the trunk is very beautiful on this side. And the pot is still to high ! Smile

Matthieu,

thanks, i appreciate your opinion. but man! these really are still old branches...but thanks.

boxwoods are difficult to get in this country, this is my very first boxwood, thats why the styling are still in the "old school" concept.

i thought before boxwood are pine trees, but of course this is just a poor alibi for the poor styling i did. when this tree grows up il use it as my christmas tree

regards,
jun Very Happy

Jun,
your styling is not bad at all. Here are some examples of boxwoods : http://images.google.fr/images?svnum=10&hl=fr&lr=&c2coff=1&rls=GGLD%2CGGLD%3A2005-14%2CGGLD%3Afr&q=buxus+bonsai

Since boxwoods are hard to get there, remember that they start very easily from cuttings. I get at least a 25% survival without even trying, nothing more than sticking in dirt and watering when i water my other stuff. if i tried I am sure my survival rate would be much much higher.
