pongsatorn,
greetings.
its not only in your country that lot of bonsai practitioner follows the so called bonsai "rules" down to the letter, that the outcome is not so good at all. If the trees were formed base totally on these "rules", trees becomes so unnatural, and the story of the composition were lost most of the time.i've seen that repeatedly in our local bonsai.

Thank you Jun, I'm agree with you... here, at my country, rules are not only popular for bonsai created but it also used as "rule" to render a decision for the winner in competition.

same here. if these so called "rules" were followed as the guidelines for judging trees. around 90% of the trees in a competition should win and the rest with natural looks must not win.
IMHO-if these were the case in most competition rules on judging a tree these way were all counterproductive for the progress of individuals trying to have a natural looking tree. they might think (especially the new practitioners)
that they were running on the wrong direction in creating something different but uniquely beautiful.
I remember seeing Roberts Stevens blog...there he said that it took him 5 years to win in a local competition...he said that he almost lost his appetite on bonsai because his art were not accepted.

Jun,

and this is a problem - "I remember seeing Roberts Stevens blog...there he said that it took him 5 years to win in a local competition...he said that he almost lost his appetite on bonsai because his art were not accepted."

Bonsai / Penjing are Not about winning competitions. No

Bonsai / Penjing are Not about acceptance of personal beliefs [ "his art" ] No

Bonsai / Penjing is about the love of nature. thumbs up

On our side, we simply display trees and discuss aspects of the effort.
Stay Well.

John,

Thanks for sharing some very nice pictures. Having said that and as you also have pointed out that there is a variety lacking across most of the trees. Most of them seem to be formal upright with great root flare (nebari) and seem to be made according to the "rules". Guess this is why people like Robert Steven and Walter Pall seem to have moved away from tradition towards nature for inspiration to create Bonsai.

It is also great to see others on this thread including Jun, Khaimraj etc wanting to take the path actually set forth by John Naka when he said "Don't make your trees look like Bonsai but make your Bonsai look like trees".

The best award one can get is the satisfaction of looking at ones own creation and smiling.
