    This test only has 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, trying 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 color film, or would you go with the
    Classic simplicity of black and white?

    -> Steve
    I'm all for the man, but this is funny.

    I don't like him, but I'd save his life. In leu of an appropriate answer, I chose color film.

    i was thinking the same thing, but picked color because you can always make it black and white later, but will never be able to get it from black and white to the original colors. :)

    Bushs presidency has been dramatic enough, and nothing can say "help, I am dying!!" like color can, plus yea, you can always make it B&W.

    Not really. Proper processing of black/white film is completely different from how you process color film... and if you want to make a black/white photo, it's always going to look a hell of a lot worse coming from a color film source than from real black/white film.

    Yeah but he'd only be indebted to you secretly, all the while calling you a terrorist and pretending to hunt you down. :eek: :eek: :lol:
