A very few berries in winter, starting to shrivel. Not sure how creative this is ... not very, I think. But I ilke the tangle of vines and the sparse, not very pretty berries. They tell me a story.

PP - iPad again, so ... cropped, "vintage" filter in PhotoStudioHD dialed back in intensity, vignette, resized. On PC, sharpened, increased contrast on main berries.

I like the title and tones and usually like this sort of shot. I think the background could have been even softer or maybe just less busy -- maybe if you had been able to pull this branch forward from it a bit? I also think taking maybe 1/4 to 1/3 off the top would have helped focus our attention on the subject.
