A Moral Question

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...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 about you.

You are a news photographer and you are in the middle of this great disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless.

You're trying to shoot impressive photos, photos that capture the emotion and tragedy of the events. Houses and people are floating around you, disappearing into the water!

Nature is showing all her destroying power, ripping everything asunder. Suddenly you see a woman in the water. She is fighting for her life, trying not to be taken away by the masses of water and mud. You move closer. Somehow the woman looks familiar.

You know who it is -- it's Hillary Clinton!

At the moment you recognize who she is, you also notice that the raging waters are about to take her away, forever. You realize you have two options. You can save her or you can take the best photo of your life. You can save the life of Hillary Clinton, or you can shoot a Pulitzer Prize winning photo, a unique photo displaying the actual "passing" of one of the world's most powerful women.

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

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

I'd go with B&W. It's my understanding that B&W pictures appear to be more clear because B&W images have better contrast.... I could be talking out of my ass. Anyone with real experience should feel free to educate me if I'm wrong

Color photos that are "converted" to black and white will not inherit the clarity of a B&W photo.

Eat right, exercise regularly, die anyway.
