Just posted to a mailing list I'm on. [evil grin]
This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. Please don't answer it without giving it some serious thought. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which you will have to make an important decision.
You're in Florida...In Miami, to be exact... There is chaos around you, caused by a hurricane and severe floods. This is a flood of major proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper caught in the middle of this great 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 showing all its destructive fury. You see a man in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be swept away with the water and debris. You move closer. Somehow the man looks familiar.
Suddenly, you know 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 know for a fact that he will die if you don't do something quickly. You have only two options. You can save him or you can take the most dramatic photos of your life. You can save the life of George W Bush or you can shoot a Pulitzer Prize-winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful men.
Now, here's the question (and please give an honest answer):
Would you select colour film, or go with the classic simplicity of black and white?
