Thanks Wayne. I'd actually like to tilt the tree’s apex forward more than in this picture.  I believe it accentuates the tree's movement.  I also plan on adding some Shari to the left trunk in the future.  Next step will be to repot and come up with a plan for putting it into a smaller box and hopefully change the angle and readjust the tree.  I also noticed in the picture after styling that the best feature of the right hand trunk is being blocked a bit by the foliage and needs some adjustment.  I wire slow and it took me 2 days to finish which made me run out of workshop time, so I did not have much time to take a nice pic, adjust the angle and all of that.  There is also two root grafts, and one that blocks some of the trunk's nice features.  I like this general front once it’s tilted forward a bit because I feel it shows off all the interesting deadwood Ibo Jin type features as well as the twist in both trunks.
