Opera singer or lawyer?

I’ve always been amused by the moody lawyer profile shot, sometimes accompanied by  shadows playing across the face and a gaze fixed squarely on the middle distance.  They aren’t just lawyers, they are Cool Guys (NB people of all genders can be Cool Guys).  Below are ten photos.  Five are New Zealand lawyers, and five are opera singer profile photos.  Can you pick which is which based solely on the style of photography?
