Quintessential you, Nick. Your use of contrasts are always so superb. I really love the middle part of the image being completely in shadow.

Excellent control of light and exciting composition. I love the withering darkness of distance. I give you the Posthumous Yellow Ribbon.

Great shot, love it. It's very French movie stuff... Top 3.

A great image, the large areas of shadow and the black suit are a great foil to the sunlit face and hand. Not a particularly strong link to the theme, for me.

No single scene illustrating life and death in this one to me. I do like the black and white rendition and the effects of the light.

I almost overlooked the subtlety of the cigarette and so, was wondering how death was involved. Well done.

Cigarettes don't make you live longer ...It just seems like it!

Exceptional use of light. Really meets the challenge on several levels such as dark and light representation of life and death and the young man partaking in deadly habit. a powerful portrait, the man looks stressed and trying to regain composure. Love this photo.
