    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 ascertain 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 should 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. 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 around you.. You are an Associated Press 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 afloat around, people floating disappearing into the water. Nature is showing all its awesome power.

    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. You can't do both. You can either save the life of George W. Bush, or you can shoot a Pulitzer Prize winning photo, a unique photo chronicling one of the world's most powerful men in a battle against the power of nature itself.

    Here's the question (please give an honest answer):

    Would you select color film, or instead go for the simplicity of classic black and white?

    I'd save his life, even though I can't stand him. I'd go with color film.
