To mention a few of the most obvious… clean and even polish the pots. Also clean up and improve the surface of the soil and do the same for the surface that the pot is sitting on. And provide a simple uncluttered background.

And by the way, it’s not my intention to lecture you about photographing your bonsai… it’s just that I see so many good bonsai that are diminished by poor quality photos.
