That is probably the most impressive pine I've seen as someone's first post on a forum!

As I've heard it said, I wouldn't stop watering it if it was on one of my benches.  Could you share its history with us, and maybe explain some of the choices you had to make?

One thing that bothers me is that the branches aren't set at the same angle leaving the trunk.  I think that would improve an already nice tree.

What do you think?

A really nice tree.  I'd love to have it.

There are three things I would do:

1)  Repot.  It appears the roots have pushed it up out of the pot.

2)  There appears to be a nub of a branch on the right of the trunk inside a curve.  I think I would remove that.  Yes, it would create a scar, but you could hide that with creative use of cut paste and bark.

3) The jin on the left.  It's so thin, it doesn't seem to go with the rest of the tree.  I think I'd remove it.

But, I've only seen this one view of the tree.  In person, I may have other ideas.

The tree is lovely, it is already very nice, and it has great potential.

This is a very natural looking tree, which isn't easy to find. It's wonderful!
 
I would set the tree slightly lower and in a larger pot next time you repot it. Also there are some long internodes that need to either be pruned off or encouraged to back bud. I agree, the jin on the left is too thin and should be removed.

This small Jinn is my personal mark of bad events, it may not fit into the tree but you can not forget

Complete agree with Adair,
And bwayne, yes It looks like they ran  out of steam after hogging down the two lower branches. uppers ones are yet to be pulled into same angle...
