Mech,
These pictures are mesmerising !!!

In the actual film, this scene goes by so slowly, as if time itself has been slowed down slightly...and the camera returns again, and again, to Frodo's face...as if the camera itself is drawn, magnetically, to those huge eyes...I remember counting, once, the number of times that Frodo' face was returned to, in that scene, compared to everyone else, and the sequence went something like this :-

Frodo, Galadriel, Frodo, Boromir, Frodo, Galadriel, Aragorn, Frodo, Celeborn, Frodo, Galadriel, Frodo, Sam, Frodo, etc, etc...well, you get the gist !!

Amused me no end, I can tell you ...

Wendy, that is very cool, annotating that. That really says it, doesn't it: even the camera (and those who directed the camera) could not stray long from That Face. "Mesmerising" - that's just what that film sequence is. Frodo and us both become mesmerized: he by Galadriel, us by him.
