Beautiful! Love the dramatic feel and the colours - and of course his fierce expression and the armour. ^_^ The leaves are a nice touch too, with the browns there's an autumnal feel.

Elrond is one of lasts High Elves, if not the last one. Of couse, Galadriela and Celeborn were also high borned, but that's not the point. After I've read Silmarillion I started to think about all those fantastic elven lords of First Age. They all were beautiful and wise, but they had to be more powerfull ald strong than e.g. elves of Third Age. I think them in contrary to boylish Legolas from LOTR. That is the way I've always immagined Elrond.
Epic pictrue, btw.

For me Elrond is a powerful figure. We know he has the gift of foresight, and he's a great healer. If I remember well the books, he's the one who unleash the waters of the Bruinen against the Nazgûl (with Gandalf adding some personal touch :)). It is said there is a great power protecting Rivendell.
Btw, there's also Glorfindel among the last high elves.

In one of his letters Tolkien wrote that Elrond is far more powerfull than we can see in LOTR. He has to be - he is the son of Earendil and Earendil is one of most important figures in Tolkien's mythology.

Aren't these high elves basically the three elves that crafted their own rings that were unaffected by Sauron's corruption when he made his ring?.

Galadriel, Cirdan, and Elrond didn't craft the three Elven rings. They were given the rings by their true maker, Celebrimbor, who suspected a fellow crafter, Annatar, wasn't as benevolent as he seemed. Annatar had a hand in making the rings of Dwarves and Men, but Celebrimbor wanted the Elven rings to be untainted, so he made them in secret. He was right to suspect -- Annatar turned out to be Sauron in disguise, who used his influence over the rings of Dwarves and Men to corrupt them.

High Elves aren't specifically the elves of the First Age. Accord to Tolkien, High Elves are those who saw the light of the two trees of Valinor - Telperion and Laurelin, the sources of the moon and sun respectively. According to the last rewrite of the Silmarillion, the last High Elves left in Middle Earth (or at least the named ones) are Galadriel and Glorfindel. Cirdan never set foot in Valinor, though it was his greatest wish.

Elrond is the descendant of all three of the royal houses of the High Elves (Finwë and the Noldor, Elwë and the Sindar, and Ingwë and the Vanyar) but he is not considered a High Elf. That being said, he COULD have been the High King of the Noldor if he had chosen to be, but Elrond did not wish to rule and let the title die with Gil-galad. He's also considered one of the greatest elves of the Third Age, if not one of the greatest elves of all time. I could go into a lot of detail about what makes Elrond such an awesome elf - his backstory is heartbreaking and inspiring - but it would take a long time. I personally think Elrond is the best elf in the entire legends simply because he survived so much.

High elves were Nordor, Vanyar and some Sindar elves. After Gil-galad's death most of them have left Middle-earth. Rest of them lived in Rivendell.
