    This test only has just the one question, but it's a very important one.
    By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely,completely fictional situation in which you will have to make a decision. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous. Please scroll down slowly and give due
    consideration to each line.

    You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions.

    You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.

    You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you... some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.

    Suddenly you see a man floundering in the water. He is fighting for his life, tying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer... somehow the man looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is.

    It's George W. Bush!

    At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him

    under... forever.



    You have the two options: You can save the life of G.W.Bush, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful men.

    So here's the question, and please give an honest answer:








    Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

    Black and white. The look on his face would be captured so much more effectively that way............. ;)

    I would save him to be honest.

    Would be good to have "the leader of the free world" owe you one ;)

    Hi,

    My geuine, and 100% honest answer - I'd push the :censored: under, and make sure I took a photo of his lifeless body, afterwards! :D :devil: Ditto if it were Tony Blair!

    But if it was anyone else, I'd probably save them!
