Jose, I like the idea of combining neagari and bunjin. I'd love to be able to work with your bonsai, but since I can't, heres a virtual illustrating how my mind's eye sees your tree.
Keep up the good work.

Mike

Thanks Mike, I think good idea to combine neagari with bunjin because in fact only has branches in the last third. What I am not sure is that the movement of the Cup is to the left, more well I think that it should bend the trunk down and right to not is so straight and then form the Cup down and turn right
Thanks to everyone for their comments, me are helping to choose the best for my tree

Hey, if you believe that design like this? is a very drastic change?

I am reluctant to say anything because of my complete novice statues in Bonsai Art but at first I really liked the tree/plant. Then after looking at Ravi's take on it, I "got it", Ravi's interpretation is beautiful. Jose you are well on your way to something beautiful.

Jose Daniel,

I did not know you had the tree posted here. As I suggested at KoB, the tree cascading to the left side would balance the tree, whereas it would totally unbalance it to the right.
Even though my suggestion reminds of a Juniper style (haha..), the leaves of your Ficus can be drastically reduced and I see no reason why you cannot achieve the proposed design.

Best,
dorothy

Thanks Dorothy, published first in this forum looking for advice about my tree, it was judged that it no bonsai and so the title of the post. At the suggestion of Mr. Will was also that upload the item at KoB, for the Mr. Robert Steven advise me.
I started telling the story of the tree and went up the photos as it is today and I thank everyone who helped me get the best design. As you say quite Ficus reduce the size of the leaves by constant pruning.
As to whether the branch is down to the left or right I'm still undecided, so I think better, at some point will come the inspiration that leads to action (jajaja!)
Thanks
P.D. Sorry my English, use google traductor!
