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 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. Thoughtfulness is important for this
evaluation to be meaningful!



You're in Florida. In Miami, to be exact. There is chaos around
you, caused by a hurricane and severe floods. This is a flood of major

You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper caught in
the middle of this great disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.
You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people

You can save the life of George W. Bush, or you can shoot a
Pulitzer Prize-winning photo, documenting the death of one of the
world's most powerful men.

Now, here's the question (please give an honest answer).

simplicity of black and white?

I'd use a camera with a lense long enough to help prod him into the water
