i bought this beautiful little japanese larch a few days ago and i am already thinking about the design for the spring work. I am curious to hear your opinions and decisions.
First of all, this is the current front when i bought the tree:
and this is the view from the left side. As you can see, the tree leans forward in this position, i assume that’s the reason why this front was chosen.
In my opinion the following front has a better nebari and better movements but if you look from the side again the apex is slightly leaning backwards or at least not so welcoming leaning forward like in the original front.

This from left side:
How would you decide? Would you take the better nebari and go with the slightly backwards lean or would you stay with the original front?
Thanks for your opinions
