After they escape the tower of Cirith Ungol, Sam and Frodo are forced to jump off a bridge, but in the darkness they can't see what's underneath.   It's a classic 'leap of faith' and I'm surprised I don't see more depictions of this memorably terrifying moment.

Awww! Lovely. And yes, you'd think you'd see it portrayed more often. Yours is the first I've seen.

Y'know, I do believe you're right. I think there is a sort of nod to it in RB. Hadn't thought about that in a while, prolly b/c it's been a few months since I watched it....

I love the colors you used, they add so much to the drama of their escape; as you say, it was a leap of faith on their part! Lovely!

It must have been a terrifying moment for them, and you've captured it perfectly.

Wow, this is awesome!! I don't think I've ever seen a depiction of it before. I remember quite vividly the first time I read this scene when I was 13 years old, and exactly what a heart-in-mouth moment it was.

You really capture the intensity so well, with the shadowy Orc figures looming in the background and the way Sam's hands are free in the air and his shield is falling.
