Deshojo Maple in Summer

Here is a recent picture of my shohin deshojo maple. As I am a newcomer when it comes to developing maple bonsai, I took advice earlier this year from experienced club members on the techniques to be applied to increase ramification and reduce the internode length between buds. I have been pinching the extension growth and partially defoliating the tree at regular intervals. It seems to be working. Still a long way to go though.
