I can't come up with a title that doesn't seem to condescend

DorianJF:
That's s a beautiful maple. Simple yet elegant


ceolaf:

This tree was also at 2014's National Exhibition. The book lists it at 15" tall, and in grew in a training pot for just a couple of years before Owen created this.

It was all the more striking for the predominance of powerful trees that we see at major (and minor) shows.

Wayne,

Yes, that is the tree. IMO this tree illustrates an ideal in bonsai, it creates an elegant image with minimalism like a Zen brush painting.

Thanks for posting the image. Thanks Owen!

Owen Reich:
I'd remove the thick top branch with the white wire on it and use a side branch on the left for a new apex.  It will create better taper for a small tree.  If the leaves of this tree are large, perhaps keep it the same height. 

Thanks for the kind words all.  A lot of bonsai in America are overt power trees.

Are both the branches you're talking about ones with the white wire?  Remove the right fork and keep the left?
