To my viewpoint the 3 images are example of Candle-Flame style
( Rosoku-Zukuri) with variations.
The 1st .image is a triple-tree candle-flame styled tree.
The second one is an old tree with short trunk line.
The 3rd.one is of asymetrical branch placement.
All these features are well executed and accepted feature of Rosoku-Zukuri.
This style(bonsai styles based on tree-shapes) differs from its elder sister Broom style ( Hoki-Zukuri) by having a natural & delicate appearence & in its branch placement. The silhouette lines between the two styles also differs in shape.
Natural look is an intregal feature of Rosoku-Zukuri, hence i think the discussion is going on its natural look - which is a feature of a style & not a style by itself here.

Having followed this discussion and others like it silently for long I venture to express a few points for consideration. Of the three trees the first one is my favourite. The second one is impressive but it has a displeasing pigeon chested look in the upper trunk which I find not at all attractive. The third is graceful and elegant but imho not naturalistic, as I understand Walter to be using the term in this and other posts. It in fact looks over touched by human hand, over perfected, neat, tidy, angelic almost.
In the context of the discussion I think we all strive to make our bonsai look natural. For example we try to make chops at the back rather than the front and disguise pruning scars,etc. Further the text book styles are only an aid to learning and I doubt if many bonsai exist that follow the rules to the letter-in fact it would be very difficult, if not foolhardy, to attempt to make them do so. It follows that trying to define a separate style as naturalistic may only obscure rather than clarify. Can I not design a naturalistic literati for instance?-Kanwal.

Just a quick thought. Has anyone actually seen a tree in nature that looks like the one in the middle? To me it looks un-natural. I personally have never seen any tree like that in nature. The trunk is just too large and it is huge all the way up. Whenever I see huge trunks in nature, the top breaks up into many smaller branches, it doesn't just continue up to a single point. The other two are amazing, especially the first one. I could stare at that one all day. Exquisite. Of course if you can show me pictures to prove me otherwise, I would be glad to concede. It looks more like a cartoon than anything in real life. Something out of a Halloween card or something.
