Gorgeous maybe. But not quite ready for an exhibition at this moment in time (assuming the last photo depicts the current status).

Are you kidding? this is one of the most ready for show trees that I have. A lot to learn for you still.

The "U" shaped branch on the right side detracts greatly from this tree. That branch looks contrived and youthful. Perhaps a change of angle to minimize the "U" shape would benefit what otherwise is a nice tree.

I like the tree, its very elegant and very Chinese penjing in style. But I think the pot is too smooth and doesn't match the bark of the tree and the middle circumference line detracts it a lot.
