Yes, communication with different language is quite difficult. I got several Chinese bonsai books, half of the contents are text the other half are pictures of trees and techniques. but, I like those books. Same thing goes with trees, No words are needed...the bottom line is the most important...the tree.

I basically understand the google translation and I appreciate your kind words. thank you.

John,

Thank you.
If you are talking about the dead wood /jined part in the center below the foliage line. It is a separate branch, I needed that deadwood in the design. it will be covered with branchlets and foliage in the future. but still I will keep it. look for the other angles, you'll know why.

regards,
jun

No, John. It's ok. I understand, Your old eyes are becoming sharper to detail observations, they are probably getting younger due to bonsai activities. I'll send you PM to explain further.

Thanks Storm.

I am learning more the value of good material. something that you can twist and turn, until you got the right "rhythm",, and the essence of not cutting too many branches in the beginning (by which some will disagree).

Good work Jun. I especially like the carving and how you make the wood look good but still worked with the grain. That is a big mistake lots of bonsai carvers do when they carve features across the grain. As the wood goes through wet and dry cycles the cross grain features will not look natural.
As for the top jin, I'd keep both; their complexity adds to the appeal of the tree. The only thing I'd do is to add a bit of taper to them.
The new angle is very dramatic and I like how you have de-emphasized the lower branch that is actually a back branch.

I find that my Causarina growth so quickly in the summer that they need constant pinching and cutting. Its one of those trees that if you like to work on a tree, get an Australian pine. They will keep you busy.

Thanks Rob!
I'm glad you like the new style. as for the dead wood, Thanks for the advice, I'll enhance it further in the near future after I mastered the technique...hopefully next week. study study study

Hello Jun. I like the way you have shortened the first bend by tilting the tree back I think?. The carving is very convincing too and twists beautifully against the grain. Well disguised. You can't kid a kidder Very Happy

John and Flavio,

Thanks!

I always heard things about "novice" people.
I think bonsai people are classified into two categories- The experts (AKA-"masters") and the Novice....nothing in between.


I am also a novice...but, I personally classified novice people into two category- the Passive novice and the Aggressive novice....nothing in between.

Ferdz,

In the Philippines...
DENR means- Department of Environment and Natural Resources


in the bonsai world...
DENR means- Destroyer of Environment and Natural Resources.

In the Uk when you serve an apprenticeship(extremely rare these days), you are the apprentice. Once you has served the apprenticeship you becomes a journeyman, before finally you establishes yourself, take on an apprentice and becomes a Master.

Ah... Not all apprentices had a Master and not all Masters were an apprentice. Some people have an innate ability that will make them a master.

Unfortunately these days, a gift of the gab makes you a master. The ability to entertain a crowd rather than any given talent.

Jun,

Bro, I envy you for being able to find such good materials, specially a casuarina... I really find it difficult to acquire this species... sometimes when I'm on the road and I see a huge casuarina tree, I just want to stop the car, go out and make an air-layer... too bad I don't have the guts to be able to look like a monkey on top of a tree, in the middle of the concrete jungle! hehehe...

Really good work on this one bro!

Regards,

Derick
