I really like this tree, it's unusual, yet very intriguing. Love the combo of the PK(?) pot and it's reflection of colour and texture in the trunk and jin/shari. Quite inspiring :tu: ... Even better in 360 :worship:

Thanks for sharing Steven, Allan and Hard1all :cool:

Cheers, Ryan

The above photo makes the top half of the tree look fairly straight, but in the 360 degree view we see all the gentle twists and turns.
A wonderful tree and a great example of the benefit of the 360 view.

I personally think this is not the correct front for this tree. After viewing it in 360 it (for mine) has a couple of better choices for frontal viewing. A good tree all the same.

:gday: Could Allan maybe elaborate on his comments:"Is soon to have the lowest branch, opposite jin, removed and the apex as well. A new apex will be then created taking the same direction as the jin to give the tree greater movement and more presence" or maybe even do a quick sketch.

:imo: i like the look of it, as is.
