Very nice work.
If you have some bonsai books I would suggest that you look at the cascades in those books. Study the relationship between the pot and the tree, and especially the falling branch.
Thanks, Vance. I have an idea what you are getting at, but I'm hoping you could expand on your thoughts concerning this tree in particular and cascades in general.
Thanks for the extra pictures. I certainly wish I had a plant of this quality to work on.
I would wish that the branches on the tail . . .
a. had a BIT more movement, and
b. could be pulled in closer to the trunk (when they stick out that far it gives a slight fishbone look).
I'd also do away with (or significantly shorten) the deadwood at the bottom of the tail. It dosn't look "real" to me and I feel that in "real life" dead branches that were this thin would have snapped off under the conditions that created them.
All that said -- and agreeing with Vance's comments -- this is a very nice tree. Wish it were mine.
