I only see a man in a forest.
If a tree falls in a forest, will a man smoking a cigarette hear it? Um, If a man drops his cigarette in the forest, will the trees hear it? Or, if a man trips in the forest, will the cigarette hear it? How about, If a tree falls on a man smoking a cigarette in the forest, will the man hear the tree or cigarette before he dies and will the trees hear the cigarette before it lights a fire and they die?

I agree with Agos.

I agree with Agos.
Those aren't exactly the kind of questions I would ask, but to each his own I guess. What do I really know anyway?

That was a funny play on the old philosophy question regarding thought and observation just to support your point on interpretation: If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? A more serious interpretation would be: The man is experiencing (Derealisation); the joy of solitude and vice thus, the artist wants us to see the man's vision of exuberance by coloring the forest the way he did, and possibly skewing the pallett to reference the danger of smoking. Eiether way, I support your first comment.
