Don,

are not the lower branches a bit thin for such a beautiful trunk ?
Good Day

according to commonly accepted bonsai principles, yes, the branches are thin in comparison to the thickness of the trunk.  But, the branches will continue to grow and fatten over time. 

I wasn't sure if you meant proportion to the trunk, or proportion to each other.

Lovely trident Mr Blackmond,

If you are going to shorten it won't you be able to then create more movement in the upper trunk sections with the base of pic 1 as the front in mind? I like the virt and the 2nd pic more than pic 1 though

regards

At first glance without opening the pic, I liked the first pic for a front . I think that is because for some reason my brain seems to like movement to the right, strange I know.  However when I opened the pic for a closer view I liked the second photo for a front.
