Interesting idea Frank
But first - that is the only place it would fit on this small rock and secondly - if it was placed on another rock in front of that, you would cover some interesting features of the rock and the tree wouldn´t stand out as it does and various background would distract the viewer.
That is why I chose this way
When I was thinking about some unusual display for the new pic of this Itoigawa juniper on rock I created last year, I thought why not to connect it with my new hobby that is astrophotography. (Because guitar and bonsai is not enough time consuming I guess, so I got to do something at nights too, right? (I´ll sleep when I´m dead)).
So I decided I am going to take it with me for my milky way photoshoot and improvise a quick display under the stars.
And here is the pic of Itoigawa by the Milky way and Jupiter and Saturn to the left of it.
It is quite a task to make it look natural as you have to focus and iluminate the tree first and then focus on the stars and make some 14 pics of it ... stack them in Sequator and then put it all together in photoshop.
But I am still learning and hopefully I will get better at it
