I think those dark, wiggly branches plus the sparse foliage give this picture an oriental flavor,.

What the camera saw:
Yes, I “photoshopped” out the leaves to the left that didn’t belong to this branch. I wanted it all by itself.
What a bystander would see:
As I noted in Kentucky Coffeetree 1, that building is a large church. This is a very big tree.
