Classic. A foreboding story told in a placid fashion.

Dark, but I like this one...reminds me of a variety of Dan's past prints, let's see...
"The Woods" meets "IFGTBL2" meets "In the Pines" meets "WYWSleeping"...it's the child of what would happen if those four prints hooked up a four-way and had a baby or something...lol

Would like to see the foreground snow to have the same effect as the rain in "The Rain Had a Sound" or "under the bridge" Would look cool against that dark background.

Spoz I should have thrown an 'IMHO' or 2cents in there.
Both scenes have a pack of wolves and the greyscale in common. In contrast, the figure in McCarthy's appears holding a small light in a natural environment pursued by the wolves, while in Danger's figure looms over an urban scene pursuing the wolves under the large moon. Some similarity and contrast between them. Guess that's not enough to tie them together for everyone.
To each their own. :pint:

heard this on the radio today...a good song by the avett brothers , while thinking of the print ( i thhink of art WAY too much)



"There's a darkness upon me that's flooded in light
In the fine print they tell me what's wrong and what's right
And it comes in black and it comes in white
And I'm frightened by those who don't see it" song -head full of doubt

I suspect this jpeg will be similiar to the dark jpegs of "In The Pines" and "He Left Yesterday Behind Him" _Benjammin, which were not as dark in person for sure. I'd like to see a lighter jpeg of it though, honestly.

I think the lantern might be the paper showing through...
I see two different colors in the ground/snow, one lighter color for all the falling snow and one last color for the trees wolves and person.

On my crappy ol' monitor this looks totally black with a wee dot of white in bottom right corner.
If I save the pic and brighten it 100% I start to see what's going on...

Very nice looking print, think this will slay in person. :clap:

Wow, that looks really nice, looks a lot better when I can see what's going on more, thanks for the light, I think this will be very nice in person compared to the .jpeg file.
