    Default For the winning shot?

    This will test your moral fortitude.
    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, 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 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 (scroll
    down)





































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

    Every time the President of USA changed, the name in the story also changed.

    I'll shoot RAW. Filling my buffer to the max, burst mode. Brat-tat-tat-tat-tat-tat...

    And make it a choice of Black and White or Colour.

    I think he will stay afloat until he sees a 1DSMK2 shooting at him... then he can RIP... hehehe....


    Besides... its low light and wet. Your 2 film options would likely be underexposed or fungus ridden before you got rescued.....
