i agree the bowed trunk is both long and bare - but my cut would be above the first branch so we get a smaller tree and nice movement with taper. I find it is always too tempting to initially keep too much of material trees, when they often need reducing quite drastically to get the design right

The upper part of the trunk is long, boring, uninteresting and rather straight.

My suggestion is to go for a shohin sized tree, utilizing only the lower part of the trunk which is rather bulky and has some character.

There is an abundance of yamadori olive trees with beautiful characteristics in Greece (flaky bark, old dead wood)
