Scots pine is looking nice.  Good job.

The Scots is looking good.  Not the container I would have chosen, but it works.  My vote is for the older round container or an older one that has curved edges.  I'll bring up a few next time.

  Isn't it great to get your trees out of training pots.  The best part of Spring.

 The Shohin I am guessing that you chopped the top a couple of years ago and your present top is a sacrifice with the two new shoots to be the new top.

Bring 'em on!  My wife doesn't think I need any more pots, but she's just wrong.

Yup.  Sacrifice is healing some past chops and helping thicken the transition.  Small bud moving to the left will be new top.  Bud below that is a new branch to the right.
