1. This is the second shot we see of the Fellowship in the same frame. What sort of difference do you notice from the prior get together after the Council of Elrond?

Not as giddy. Everyone is a bit more serious.

2. Of course it's impossible to talk about these group shots without mentioning the scaling. Does it work here?

Works for me.

Which techniques do you think were used to create this single shot?


3. Look at the braid on the back of Elrond's head. Thoughts? I surely never saw it before.

Who braids it for him? Erestor? Arwen? Glorfindel? Does he return the favor? Is a large part of immortal lives sitting around braiding each other’s hair? Who does it later on in ROTK when Rivendell appears deserted?

4. Both Legolas and Aragorn are bowing respectfully to Elrond. While it might be understandable why the others might not be, why isn't Gandalf showing his gratefulness as well?

I think Gandalf outranks him. Elrond is only 6.25% Maia.

5. Any additional thoughts?


The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”
