Frodo learning the full truth of the ring.

Outstanding! The heavy shading makes for a perfect mood. Not sure if showing the image of the hand of Sauron actually contributes.

:-) Richard Claraval replies: "Excellent comment. Now that you point it out, I see that the hand is indeed not helping. My original mental image of this scene was that the hand would be more perhaps shadowy and integrate more fully with the purely tangible elements. Thanks"
