    This test only has 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, in 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 woman in the water. She is fighting for her life,

    trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer.

    Somehow the woman looks familiar. You suddenly realize

    who it is. It's Hillary Clinton!

    At the same time you notice that the raging waters are

    about to take her under . . forever. You have two options--you can

    save the life of Hillary Clinton, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer

    Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's

    most powerful women.

    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?

    I'd have to go black and white on this one. Mute out the background so you can focus more on the subject.

    B&W with a close up of her face while she is reaching for me to help her and I am ignoring her because I am too focused on the subject and grinning because of I am thinking of the Pulitzer I am going to earn for capturing such an amazing moment..... capturing that look of astonishment - and fear - on her face would surely win me a Pulitzer!

    On a side note, unfortunately we laugh about this as a joke, while recenlty in Baghdad, something very similar happened and the journalists decided to catch it all on film. There has been much speculation (and probably rightly so) that the journalists were tipped off and new it was going to happen but didn't report it to authorities. Very sad indeed.

    (I am speaking of the election workers that were assasinated on the streets of Baghdad while the AP photographers caught it all on film. I seriously doubt it was coincidence that they were there while this all went down).

    Sorry to turn your humor thread into a rant!
