This initial picture has stellar branching and it seems now to be thinned and more coarse. Is there a reason the ramification seems to be going backwards?

Sure, the number of branches was way to high and the tree was too dense. I know that this will sound strange to you. There is an optimum for everything. If you do smothing good and then do it better - at one point it will get worse.
I try very hard to style trees tha look like trees and not like bonsai. This is a notion that is still strange in some quarters. But it has gained in populartiy immensly over the past decades.

Just for your information: The image with 'stellar' branching was in 2007 before I owned this tree. And then you see in 2010 Mr. Hirotoshi Saitho the headliner from Japan at a major convention in Germany reducing the number of branches considerably. Later I acquired the tree and continued styling and make it look like an old real tree.

This is all I have to say. I normally do not discuss my trees. They can be discussed, but not with me, please. They can be disliked - fine with me. I am not here to ask for critique or praise. I am here to show what I do - take it or leave it. You can possibly learn from it - it's your call, not mine.
