Have a good 10 min video on part of the demo but can't seem to get it to upload on youtube. Keeps saying failed to upload due to unknown error.

Thanks for taking the time to upload and share all those pics! I especially like the pines in the 2nd shohin display that you shared with us.

Those shohin (jbp, winterberry, hinoki,jwp) are amazing.  Is there any chance you got a front-on picture of that grouping w/ the jwp in frame.  (I see in the first far-away shot where the jwp was in relation to the rest of the group, but I wouldn't mind seeing better.  Hopefully it'll be in Asheville.)

I really liked the literati junipers that were displayed too.  I think some have a little too much foliage to "feel" like literati, but I can tell that's what they were going for.  (As backhanded as this sounds, I seriously like each one of them.)

Were there any superlatives or prizes or contests or ...votes that were given.  Any idea what Warren said in any of his critiques?

Sorry I did not get a pic of the jwp w/ the shohin display. I know where ppl came in and signed the guest book they were told to vote but didn't really pay much attention as to what categories. Only award I saw went to Mike Deitz's Button Bush tree. He asked me to take pics of him, Warren, John Wall and Owen with his tree since they all had a part in getting the tree to where it presently is. In general his critiques discussed what he liked, did not like, how the trees were presented, styled, shown. He was honest about what he saw. I could see some folks were concerned(which told me it was there tree). Most did not display their trees high enough in his opinion. The pic of him kneeled down in front of a boxwood is a good example. He thought the tree was perfect in every way except it was shown too low. To have seen all its intricasies you needed to kneel down. I had to squat to take the pic of the tree itself.
