nice.
repositioning the second branch on the right really makes the bottom right branch look shorter.
I like the airiness resulting from thinning and needle removal.  It looks very good.
Will you keep the front as is or rotate just slightly?

Hi Don,
The repositioning helped, the first branch has also been significantly shortened by pruning. Pulling the branches down also makes the tree look "older". I don't have any plans to reposition at potting, but the top will be "twisted" down a bit. Thanks.

John

The shohin pine sitting on top of the display set up by my BIB compatriot Inge, along with a Japanese Maple, an Olive, a Ficus nerifolia and a chojubai. The other tress belong to Boon or members of the club.
