Nice work Savva.
I am sure that during the course of the next couple of years you will improve it even more, as i see that you might have used more branches than necessary (IMHO). I also feel that the dead branches overpower the final image and they distract; i would shorten them if it was my tree.
Nevertheless, I like it!!
thumbs up thumbs up thumbs up

I agree entirely with Stavros. I would retain the long deadwood on the top of the tree and shorten the rest.
I would also remove the two lower branches.
Nice tree and nice work Savvas!

Thx for your comments guys... thumbs up I think i agree with both of your points.I kept everything as it is because it doesnt obstact me from setting the branches where i want them.Surely though there will be some shortening of nearly all dead wood.....and off course when first repotting takes place there should be some major carving so that that ugly cut at the bottom is removed.... thumbs up

Well For me What I see is not pleasing to the eye.

Did you think as an option the reduction of the overall height?

Greg at the begining i thought about it,but then i said no.The character of the tree is based on that big hollow base,and that long neck.the whole design and the final outcome should emphasize those two.I know if i cut it etc etc etc,but i dont want it like this,then all trees would look so similar....my opinion friend...future will show.

The SWAN at its new home.....i wasnt very satisfied with the new growth and i didnt trust that old substrate at all.Furthermore yesterday i fellt soil rock hard so even though its a bit early i did it.Today i repotted the tree in 90% inorganic and keep fingers crossed.....

Not far from what i have in mind Greg....thanks for your virtual...
Now...
1...as far as curving that bump at the back,you are absolutely right...I am not sure if i will go as far as you show there but some carving will be done at a later stage off course....
2...About the lower branches?i Am not sure either,time will show...i would rather keep them rather than cut them and feel sorry..
3...Getting rid of some more dead wood?may be,as you see i already did get rid of some we will see about the rest.....
4....New planting angle?well that might be considered as well....
For now the health of the tree comes first and the rest will follow....Thanks anyway....thumbs up thumbs up
