nice maple!

here the trees are also losing the leaves, i have only 1 decidous tree that drops it's leaves in the winter and that is my acer palmatum, but they aren't pretty anymore.

i will try to post some pictures if i find some nice trees.

To really develop that maple, you should give it a little bot of growing space. Use sacrifice branches or let it grow out utill it reaches some thickness. In a bonsai tray it will not really add girth.
