A lot of nice pictures and some videos can be found (more and more are added each days) at http://www.parlonsbonsai.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=49480&st=0.

We added some close-up for a few trees, especially the Prunus spinosa by John Pitt (what an amazing tree ! cheers )

Just seen the trees from the supplied link and it looks like a fabulous Show. It’s good to see a nice cross section of species rather than just the usual suspects (Pines, Junipers etc). Excellent to see some of the Maples looking in such “non-Autumn” colour as our Summer this year was oh too short Sad

Glad to see that your trees made it in one bit Tony and didn’t mind the temperature jump from their overnight stop in sunny Kent. A bit of a shock for them I know!! I did notice that “50” was leafless although I did notice a nice black berry. My two kids are still telling people all about the dragonfly that they saw in your car. Shame I couldn’t have stowed away in your boot of your car if it wasn’t for those pesky Yews!!

Thanks again for sharing,
Ook, Ook,
Simon

I think the Rosemary(?) in the second picture is interesting it's a real shame about the treatment of the deadwood & live vein. They look too much Juniper-esk and artificial for this species. Knit-picking I know but an interesting tree all the same,

I think this rosemary is a yamadori, so the trunk and live vein movements were natural, despite an artificial look... Rolling Eyes

It wasn't the "look" (shape) but colouration of the bark and live vein that I questioned,

Monsieur Hin,
Thank you for showing the pictures and providing the links to this show. WOW!

I like the Rosemary and despite the fact that very few trees in nature are bleached white with such dark contrasting veins, cette superb! I must say that most junipers and pines in the wild do not have this kind of contrast either; what say you Simon?
Best,
Todd

It was a pleasure Todd, I think it is always a good thing to see some high-level trees... Very Happy
About the rosemary, it was very "graphic", with a very strong, but subtle trunk line...Considering this fact, a very contrasted difference between the live vein and the dead wood was not chocking (for me... Wink )

Hi Todd,
Firstly I have to say (in defence of the tree and myself) that I have not seen the tree in real life and, coming from a printing background, I know how much a bad or blown picture can affect the subject matter. Any-ho, I digress!!

I think that the Rosemary is an interesting tree with great movement and a pleasing image. The thing that I am uncomfortable with (and it appears only me at this point) is the treatment of the live vein and deadwood. These plants/trees come from a dry environment and wouldn’t naturally have this very moist and polished look to the bark. I have the same problem of definition between these two areas on one of my Lonicera’s as, like Rosemary, the flaky bark is quite pale when left untreated. I do admit to giving it a very light oil, if I am showing it, to offset the colour of the deadwood. This is enough to give the tree some depth but without making it look too false.

Regarding deadwood, I agree with you regarding Pines & Junipers (Yews as well come to think of it) not having a very “white” appearance in the wild. Now that Autumn is upon us my journey to work everyday passes through some lovely wooded areas where the deadwood is mostly an ashen grey or very washed out brown colour. I’m very much a follower of the “finish” that Will Baddeley or Simon Tremblett get to their deadwood toning the white down to achieve a more natural and pleasing colouration. There are plenty of trees with deadwood & bark colouration “done well” but there are unfortunately there are also plenty that have had the “white wash and boot polish” treatment.

I hope that this clears up my concerns with everyone and this was not seen as a dig at a lovely tree.
After all, what would I know; I only do Topiary Bonsai,
Regards,
Simon

Hello Simon. I couldn't agree more about stark white Lime Sulphur applied directly before a show. Some time to season or a small amount of ink will help bring out the depth in the deadwood.
In defence of the Rosemary, pictures taken with a black background will often give anything grey or whitish a stark appearance.
Some wonderful trees though. Thanks for posting.

I saw this rosemary in Saulieu, in fact it was among my top 5 in the whole exhibition,
and was judged in the top 3.

The picture does no justice whatsoever to the sublime sutble nuances of this tree,
it does not convey the 3 dimensional aspect of the trunk,
and the contrast is so stark as to bear no resemblance to the true colours.

In fact it looks so natural, in every aspect,
when you stand in front of it, hard to believe it is not hanging from a cliff face, in full sunshine,
and the presentation is a credit to the owner.

John.

I'm totally agreed with John, and with Simon and Will... Very Happy
In the picture, the dead wood seems very bleached, and therefore artificial.
Unless having looked this tree as intensively as John, the dead wood didn't shocked me.
I have found a picture on another background in this forum, the dead wood looking more natural... ThumbsUp
