This was actually my favorite image from the entire top 3 in each category! Marvelous work, and far more worthy and 3rd place, in my opinion. The concept and articulation are remarkable. Well done!

Um, don't know the rules about jumping into a comment section about one of the winning shots, but I wanted to ask Nawets about his monitor calibration. I'm looking at this with an Apple 30" HD Cinema Display that is well-calibrated and the photo is not at all dark. Is your contrast adjusted correctly?

Also, just wanted to add that I think the toe tag is necessary in the shot if you want to give context for a MVA due to speed. The tag gives a very impersonal, almost "statistical" quality to this photo that gives it impact in my view. As a former healthcare person who has seen thousands of dead human remains (yes, thousands), this struck me because after a while, you start to just categorize them in certain ways -- such as "the MVA, the CVA, the MI, the Suicide, the homicide," etc. . . . In this photo, the photographer chose to illustrate a speed MVA fatality with that one item that grabs people's attention -- a toe tag. In fact, how would one even really know that the person is dead without it? This could be a tall guy waiting for a massage and treatment at the physical therapists office for all we know. . . . They use white sheets. And in this day and age, I haven't seen a dead body in a clinical setting without a toe tag -- too much risk of a mix-up. so yes, the toe tag works in my view. . . .

LOL! yeah, unless you have access to your local hospital or county morgue it's pretty hard to come up with a dead body in 48 hours. . . . but you could create the liver mortis with make-up, although that gets a bit messy. . . . in any event, good job!

Great shot! I like it -- a lot! It looks wonderfully unscripted and the exposure is perfect. Congratulations.

Comment:
You know, I hang out with the press pack a lot doing photo shoots and it isn't unusual for several photographers to get the same exact shot given that many of us are bracketing and standing in the same place (taking several shots per second). I'd advise caution in calling someone a theif unless you have some stronger proof. The buren of proff is, afterall, on the accuser.

Fabulous image. . . . perfect.
