White pine jin placement

<< < (3/4) > >>

Dirk:
John,

I'm impressed with your reply. I think it is hard to ask yourself those questions about your own trees.
I think its hard to look real objective at your trees.
As hard maybe as seeing possible improvements in an already very good tree. I remember Walter Pall saying:
Good is the enemy of better!
Greetings
Dirk

John Kirby:
Walter was paraphrasing Jim Collins among others, any one have an ancient Greek or Latin source? Was an OK book.

Dirk:
I did not say that Walter invented this statement, just that he sad it.
I think he's right though.

John Kirby:
The jin in its current form doesnotwork for me, shorten or as John said add movement. Not sure about this approach fo bending (or straightening?) green wood.

bwaynef:
The lower jin is a little jarring.  Its longer than it has to be, and and the movement is somewhat distracting as well.  I think it would be drastically improved if it's movement complemented the lower trunk.  (It doesn't have to MIRROR the lower trunk ...and might be better if it didn't.)
