The darker branches are just made of black wavy lines, not a solid gray as displayed in the picture. When I first opened the package I thought for sure I must of been looking at the paper behind it, but it was the actual pattern of the film.
I liked the product I got, and have decided to go back for some more.
I put these up in my bedroom to allow light to come in but keep people from seeing into my apartment complex. It looks pretty from both sides and is very easy to install since you can easily re-position them if necessary. I'm going to get more for my bathroom windows!
