Your screen shots are gorgeous! When I first saw FoTR, I so much fixated on that last cap and the one where Frodo walks out onto the balcony as he finishes dressing--so beautiful. My favorite film scene is still Frodo's meeting Gandalf on the road and riding with him--another totally new adaptation. And that scene, together with this balcony scene and the previous with the Redbook, where the film deviates from the text is where it does most capture book Frodo. The writing trio caught the spirit and ran with it beautifully. Though I can't say that with the deviations in the other 2 films.

And I hadn't thought of it before until reading what you said here, how much the shear beauty of the scenery here does to convey the wonder of the hobbits' longer stay in Imladris, as Tolkien describes it by how delightedly they spend their time there. It's a good illustration of how a proper visual shorcuts text.

What a sweet poem of Sam's caretaker concern from Januwine.

Yes to that! Sometimes their original scenes were gifts, wonderfully inspired. Sometimes ... *not*. I'm so pleased you enjoyed this series, Lavender!
