Lovely image and the red background is a perfect compliment to the green. Just as a side note: A Japanese bonsai expert at a Bonsai show I attended, gave me the following advice ... he said that bonsai are to be photographed from a low level, the same level as the pot/container, so as not to show the back of the pot. He said they want the bonsai to look like it is actually in nature and not confined to a container.
