When you look at the second photo, it has the characteristic like it was growing out of a cleft between two rocks. If you want to continue with that idea, and depending how how much fiberous root you would loose, I would take off that knob at the base of trunk. If you do that, you could position another stone there so it would have that growing out of a cleft appearance. You could give more of an inward curve (L) and then ramify your apex from that. Think too about your branches and work them into a more horizontal position...try some other stones maybe on the flatter side.

Good luck with it.
