This test only has one question, but it's an important one. Don't answer
it without giving it serious thought. By giving an honest answer you will
gain more of an insight into your character. With all your honour and
dignity, what would you do?

The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation, where you
have a decision to make, one way or the other.

Scroll down slowly and consider each line carefully before moving on.

You're in Florida, in Miami to be exact. There is great chaos all around
you, caused by a hurricane and severe flooding.

There are huge masses of water all around you. You're a CNN photographer
and you are in the middle of this great disaster.

The situation is nearly hopeless. You are taking photos, trying to capture
that perfect picture, which will at once communicate the desperation and
futility of the situation.

There are houses and people floating around you, disappearing into the
water. Nature is showing all its destructive power and is ripping
everything away with it.

Suddenly you see a man in the water; he is fighting for his life, trying
not to be taken away with the masses of water and mud. You move closer.
The man looks familiar.

Suddenly you know who it is - it's George W Bush!

At the same time you know that the raging waters are about to take him
away... forever!

There are two options. You can save him or you can take the best photo of
your life.

You can save the life of George W Bush, or you can shoot a Pulitzer prize
winning photo. A unique photo displaying the death of one of the world's
most powerful men.

And here's the question: (Please give an honest answer)

Would you select colour film, or go with the simplicity of classic black
and white?
