Shito: I think you have an excellent start at the styling of your juniper. I do, however, believe that there is room for improvement. There are a few places (see the red lines in the photo below) where there is a visual straight line across the trunk. While these may not technically be bar branches, they have the same visual effect.

On the other hand, much too much is made of bar branches. Especially when they're as high in the tree as the upper two lines, and especially on small trees, where whatever branches you have must "stand in" for a whole tree's worth of branches.

Some minor pruning or maybe wiring will take care of the putative "bar" branch at the bottom. I would not bother.

I would get rid of (or wire down) that lower back branch that sticks up on the left, however.

Nice tree. Is it about 7-8 inches (14-16 cm)?
