Thanks for sharing the pictures.  Our study group in Minnesota braved the deer hunting opener and went into the woods and brought home several larches.  Who knew you had to wear blaze orange to "hunt" trees?

So interesting all the different styles you have trained the trees.  Please update this next year.

Nice color, and trees.  I paticularly like the first.  Great movement on bottom half of tree.  Any chance you could reduce the tree to half it's height?  The bottom of the tree has wonderful movement, which may be enhanced by bringing a branch (or part of it) up, or around for apex.  I was thinking of the second on right.

Another note.  I see you have been able to post on this site and others using thumbnail images.  I have tried, but end up with large full size images.  Any suggestions, or instructions to post thumbnail images on this site, Bonsai Nut, or Internet Bonsai Club?

Thanks, Josh

Thanks for the pictures.  Great trees. 
I purchased some larch seedlings last spring and have experience the fall colors.  They have been put aside for the New England winter.    Nine of the trees are in a grow box as a forest planting and three are in individual pots.

I wonder if some bends couldn't be introduced in the upper half.  I can't decide if drastic bends would look better than just a little interest.

We at BSG have made a decision that, in the best interest of the membership, we wanted to host all the images that are displayed on the site.  Often, sites will make a lot of the cost of bandwidth or storage space accrued by hosting images, and as soon as images are hosted off-server, you start to see worthless threads as images get removed/moved from the image-hosting server.  Threads that once made sense, and advice that was pertinent gets buried and the information that was once relevant and useful disappears.

We're very generous in the size of images allowed here.  800px (though, larger sizes are accepted) and 256kb in size are the limits.  You can post your images here, then link to them in the body of your message using \[img] tags.  That's how HA does it.
