Moral Dilema

    Here's a dilemma for you...
    Answer on your honour and dignity - what would you do?

    This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. Please don't answer it without giving it some serious thought. By giving an honest answer you will be able to test where you stand morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation, where you will have to make a decision one way or the other. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous. Please scroll down slowly and consider each line - this is important for the test to work accurately.

    You're in Florida, USA. In Miami, to be exact... There is great chaos going on around you, caused by a hurricane and severe floods. There are huge masses of water all over you. You are a CNN photographer and you are in the middle of this great disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.

    You're trying to shoot very impressive photos. There are houses and people floating around you, disappearing into the water. Nature is showing all its destroying 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 by the masses of water and mud.

    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 away, forever. You have two options. You can save him or you can take the best photo of your life. So 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 would you rather go with the simplicity of classic black and white?

    Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don't have film.

    Being the patriotic soul that I am, I'd want to shoot him with something quintessentially English. Like a Purdey.

    I don't care how old the joke is, I still loved it Fen :)

    Something I'm not quite sure about though. Would digital be alright, as I don't often carry a film camera nowadays?

    because then I could convert to B&W if I wanted to sell it as "Fine Art"/img/wwwthreads/wink.gif.

    And, Pete, you're incorrect, Chris isn't naked...he's just not there???

    Being a humanatarian.........................I'd whop him over the head a few times with the camera just to make sure the bugger drowned.................now that really would be doing a favour to humanity!

    I'd probably use a WMD - a Nikon F on the end of a length of lavatory chain
