SCOD: The choice of Arwen Can't Post

Welcome to the next Screencap Of The Day.

Here are the images:

Full-sized images can be found here and here.

What I like is the way these pictures are almost mirror image to each other with the positioning of the characters, the plants being in the foreground and the house in the background.

What struck me throughout the entire trilogy (and I am even detecting it now in the Hobbit) is that in almost all the scenes that involve the elves there are moments where the camera is zoomed out and it is as though the audience is peering in like children at the elves (a little like Frodo and Sam when they see the woodelves). In other scenes with men of dwarves the audience is usually made to feel much more part of the scene. I assume this is deliberate rather than coincidence, possibly to emphasise the fact that the elves are ethereal compared to any other creature in Middle Earth.

1. Do you think this is why they have done this? Do you like the way they have done this?

2. Look at the colours in each scene. Symbolically what do think is being conveyed here?

3. A question for costume lovers. What do you think of the costumes in this scene and how they help portray the characters thoughts and emotions?

4. i) What do you think of the music in this scene?
....ii) A little bonus question. Do you prefer the OST version of the soundtrack (Twilight and Shadow) or the Complete Recordings version (The Grace of Undómiel)

5. Any other thoughts or comments about this scene?

What's this? A Ranger caught off his guard?
