Bald Cypress #2

Here is my second attempt at a flat top. It was a cutting off another bald cypress last summer. Theres a couple of young branches shooting bolt upright which will be corrected as they lignify. As you can see, I have this as #2 because I am working on a much bigger blog post on #1.
I think this Iker pot and the dark blue suits it well. All comments and critiques are welcome and urged. Thank you.

Now one thing i would like to point out about YEARS with a tree is how theres that eureka moment as you water and gaze upon a tree, you see a 100 times better design idea revolving around simply cutting a branch off….well thats what occurred with this cypress. I really like how the foliage areas are not so heavy anymore and the trunk is furthur emphasised.
