LOVE this print...holy crap it looks real! Love the idea of a Masai tribesman in the middle of a forest, even if that's not what it's supposed to look like!

Same for me. Weird spooky shape, different than his regular guy stepping outside shape. I find myself having a harder time just getting into the scene because the ''guy'' appears like a stranger to me. Maybe even ''unfriendly''. Against my will, that shape forces me to have a different approach leaning more towards a ''Daniel Danger atmosphere'' instead of what I'd normally want to feel for it, which would be more something like a ''feel good'' thing, ''in harmony with the nature'' kind of feeling.

Maybe it's Death. :twisted:

I love this print. It's the first one in a while that I've really liked. Got one as a present too. :)

The silhouette looks more like something DD would do.

hirschy75 you might have better success if you post that in the EB corrections thread, just sayin'

Maybe. This could be a parallel between fall-->winter's coming and ''Elder Days'' of life-->death's coming. Good eye man. It makes a lot of sense with the title.
That spooky shape definitly changes the whole treatment/subject/feeling of this image imo.

This print is going to be an instant classic I think. It's really quite stunning and I love the eerie, dark feel it has to it. Plus, it's 18x24 perfect for framing. I may just buy 2!

Also, can anyone make out what the shadows are where the guy is looking at?
