Japanese Black Pine:The skinny one pt1

This is a relative's tree grown from seed.Before these pictures were taken all non~essential branches were cut off,and then it was re~potted into this temporary pot,and left alone for a year to recover from being severely root bound.This is only it's first styling,and i tried to make a natural looking "Scot's pine" image which i might see around here,it works for me as this is what i see on my trip's to and from work every day.It still needs extensive work,the crown is made of shoots all trained upwards to give it a natural appearance,instead of the typical bonsai apex's of flattened shoots.A picture in it's new pot will follow when it's settled in.
