The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.


- from Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening by Robert Frost



I love this poem and have always thought of it as having a
sort of melancholy romance, but the last verse taken in
isolation potentially has a completely different atmosphere.

I was inspired by the concept of desperately trying to stay
awake in what should be beautiful surroundings, but
everything is tinged with exhaustion-induced paranoia.

For some reason I can't fathom, this looks a lot less
contrasty on dA than it does on my computer. Strange.

A fantastic photo, as always! (And I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one who viewed this poem that way!)

That'll be the Collective Rectum at work, affecting the colours of your photo. :fart: :giggle:

Doesn't DA do that always?

I believe it's most notable with drawings and such, and I hear other artists complain about it

I have a special connection with this poem. It is full of melancholy romance, and it's also the weirdest way I've ever been broken up with.

I don't know what it looked like before, but it does seem that DA killed the contrast a little. How weird.

I just posted a link in the description to the picture on Facebook which seems to have the right level of contrast. It's weird, cause none of my other pictures seem de-contrasted on dA!
