Can you guess what this is? I'm sure the answer is no, it's too abstract.
How about now?
No? Let's make the points even smaller...
OK, now you can probably tell what it is. Below is the original image, which was taken in Joshua Tree National Park a few weeks ago.
Pointillize is a filter in PhotoShop (and probably many other photo editing programs as well) that turns the image into multiple "points". The cool thing is you can select the size of the points, which allows you to do some pretty interesting edits. Not sure it works well for this image (I think I like the original best), but fun to play around with!
