hi, nice find.

i think the two trunks need to ease away from each other a bit more so there is a space between them at the top, and the pom pom looking dense area at the top needs a bit more thinning out to match the rest of the branches. )r even removing if you are feeling brave !

after that it will look very balanced and you will be able to see if any branches look wrong crossing over from one trunk to another - if they do they just need bending back a little or trimming off. Some of the finer side branches could be wired down and in time you may cut off the lowest branch

its getting a really nice tree image already though, i like it

I agree with Marcus about separating the trunks a bit and thinning the top. You may also want to consider shortening the lower trunk a bit and also bending the branches so they start their downward slope directly from the trunk rather than going up and then down. These are refinements of a start of a good bonsai.
