Well, Al @Bananaman ... This is what I consider my closest finished tree. Still has wire on it to correct a root that was not in line with the rest. I need to allow the nub to die so I can remove it flush with trunk on the left of the trunk...and find a wider, and slightly shallower pot. (Are the pot combo also up for debate?)Fine, everyone here wants to see trees, post your best tree, and self critique it. I do this with every tree I pick up in my backyard and begin pruning. I have a keeper pile and a seller pile. Be honest and put your tree out there and critique the thing like its some guy you don't even know and can hide behind that cool screen name you have here. Explain what it is you see good and what you see bad, what you can fix and what is unfixable. If this was your tree would you continue spending money on it or would you tell the guy to get better material? You self diagnose your own stuff. This exercise will scare the Hell out of you. It will force to to come to realizations that you may not be ready to handle yet. I want to see just how well some of you handle the attacks good or bad on your own stuff. It's not fun being real with yourself.

I have five trees that I feel are almost there...but not quite. So I list this one. My plan B...when I snapped the left lower branch off trying to lower it some. But overall...I think it's a nice piece. But it's all about the roots...could they be taller...sure. But then it wouldn't fit where I wished it to go on my bench.
