    Default Moral Dilemma in New Orleans ....

    Moral Dilemma

    So where do you stand morally?

    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.
    -------------------------
    THE SITUATION

    You are in New Orleans 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 photo journalist 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.

    ===============================================
    THE TEST
    Suddenly you see a man 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 the President, 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 the President, or you
    can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the
    death
    of one of the world's most famous men.


    ===============================================
    THE QUESTION

    Here's the question ;

    Would you select high contrast colour film,

    or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white

    Will choose to save him if possible.

    If not, Will probably use Fujifilm NPH-400 and fire at 8fps to burn out the whole roll. Will select the best one out of it. =P

    B&W, burst the roll and save his life.

    IMHO, a life is more important than a picture.If bursting the roll will take too much time, to hell with the picture and drag him out instead.
