What is it? I liked the shapes. I created outlines and reproduced them in the background. Created in Photoshop. NIKON D750, f-stop f/10, exposure time 1/60 sec. ISO 125, focal length 105mm, and max aperture 3.6

To bring out the pods I separated them from the background, blurred and lightened the background and outlined the Wisteria Pods. This turns a photo into art.

Created in Photoshop. NIKON D610, f-stop 1/6.3, exposure time 1/200 sec., ISO·2200, focal length 135mm, and max aperture 4.6.
