Walter_Pall:
mcspesq817 in Boon's thread has asked about the difference of what he calls 'classical' style and what I call 'naturalistic' style. I did not want to hijack Boon's thread and so here we are. The images should speak for themselves.
 
First tree are trident maples, Acer burgerianum
fourth is a field maple, Acer campestre

In my system the first one is in the neoclassical style and the rest are in naturalistic style in different forms of abstraction and, of course, in different stages of development.

bonsaikc:
Walter,
I think these are wonderful examples of great bonsai indevelopment. Would you consider showing one of these from its earliest work and perhaps discuss how you made the style decisions you made along the way? I know that would be valuable for me, and I am certain it would for others, too.

Well Im pretty sure naturalistic is looking like a tree str8 out of nature, and classical is a tree that has all of those japanese rules applied to them. Neoclassical Im not to sure of. I dont know why this topic is such a big deal. As long as a tree looks good, what does it matter. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
