Sad, but in a different way

Sad, but in a different way [In reply to] Can't Post

Do you feel a markedly different tone in this shot in comparison to that of Lothlórien? If so, what aspects of the cap help do that?

The Lothlorien shots were sad in a gentle, reassured way. This shot is sad in a darker, colder way. I think the blue tint and the fact that the characters aren't directly interacting with each other lead to that in this cap.

Comment on the expressions and the body language of the two characters

Frodo looks withdrawn. Sam looks concerned.

Is Frodo already starting to become more withdrawn by this stage? If you've read the book, is there a similar quality to Frodo at this stage?

Yes, he is. And yes, there is a similar quality in this section of the book, which I just reread for my own screencap postings this week! In the book, Frodo knows he needs to leave the fellowship but is afraid to do so. This is why he goes off alone - to get away from the influence of his companions so he can begin to separate form them emotionally. By his body language, he's doing the same thing here.

all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us...
