put that down! you've no idea where it's been... [In reply to] Can't Post

1) Let us focus on the first picture [of Gandalf]. He looks somewhat worried and, perhaps, wary of Pippin whom has just touched the Palantír. Do you suppose he is thinking of what effect the “seeing stone” is having on Pippin?

Yes, those are pretty much the thoughts I've always had about Gandalf's look here. It seems natural given the way Pippin is gripping the palantir in the previous shot.

Quote
‘Here, my lad, I'll take that! I did not ask you to handle it,’ [Gandalf] cried, turning sharply and seeing Pippin coming up the steps, slowly, as if he were bearing a great weight. He went down to meet him and hastily took the dark globe from the hobbit, wrapping it in the folds of his cloak. ‘I will take care of this,’ he said. ‘It is not a thing, I guess, that Saruman would have chosen to cast away.’ ~ The Two Towers | The Voice of Saruman

... In my opinion, there is a more serious reaction in the film.
Do you prefer Gandalf’s reaction in the book or in the film?
Well, in the book--Gandalf did speak (*cried out*) *sharply* and did *hastily* take the palantir. Those *words* conveyed a pretty serious reaction, bookwise. Nope, no preference between the two versions.

3) Now let’s focus on the picture of Pippin. Do you think he was expecting more of a telling off from Gandalf? What do you think about how this reaction is shown?
Watching Pippin's reaction has a bigger impact on me that simply seeing the screencap. The anger (?) I always interpreted in his look is not so apparent in the still. I imagine Pippin's thoughts to be something along the lines of ....get off my case already! I never get to do anything interesting/important!

4) Any other thoughts/comments?
I successfully avoided making a baking pun!
