SCOD: Frodo and Sam face the Emyn Muil Can't Post

Welcome to the *sniff* last SCOD for LOTR as Frodo and Sam face the tough road ahead.

1) I, unfortunately, have never been to New Zealand, but I’m fairly sure this must be a composite of actual mountains and CG or matte paintings – does it look convincing?

2) If you’re a book firster, is this the way you pictured the Emyn Muil and the Ephel Duath? For both book and movie firsters, what did you think (or how did you feel) when you saw this vast and daunting expanse before our heroes?

3) What elements in this scene – lighting, composition, placement of Frodo and Sam within the frame, etc. – contribute/contributed to your thoughts and feelings about what Frodo and Sam had to face?

Extra) On a different note – how did you feel about this being our final image of the film with a year’s wait for ROTK? If you hadn’t read the book first, were you surprised that this was how FOTR ended?

Any other thoughts welcome!

Thanks everyone Smile
