    Are you as moral as you think you are?
    This test only has one question, but it's a very important one.
    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.
    Only you will know the results, so remember that your answer needs to be honest.

    THE SITUATION:
    You are in Florida, Miami to be specific.
    There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding.
    This is a flood of biblical proportions.
    You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster.
    The situation is nearly hopeless.
    You're trying to shoot career-making photos.
    There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water.

    THE TEST:
    Suddenly you see a man in the water.
    He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris.
    You move closer.
    Somehow the man looks familiar.
    You suddenly realize who it is.
    It's Donald Trump!
    At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.

    YOU HAVE TWO OPTIONS:
    You can save the life of Donald Trump or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful Republican men hell bent on the destruction of America.

    THE QUESTION:
    Here's the question, and please give an honest answer.
    "Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?"

    I'd never visit Miami Florida, although I personally feel the image would be much more received in black and white. Although secondly you could just change the transparency of the color photo into black and white once having taking the color image.

    I agree with @Cib3rNaut Take the picture in high contrast colour, change it to black and white and resell it as a new one. We are ambitious photo journalists aren't we?

    Yep, we're not search and rescue. All we have is camera equipment, might as well use it.

    I'd use the camera to take a selfie with Trump, whilst I'm holding his head under water.

    The first journalist to photograph Trump and his daughter in actual suggestive poses, most likely would take home numerous prestigious awards

    I'd snap a few photos and then save the poor bastard... Maybe it would make him turn around his miserable life. LOL

    If there is NO way I can both take a photograph and save him, I would save him first.

    Colour. You can rework it in RAW and make it black and white later. Adding color later is much harder.

    And, even though he's a twat, I'd still save him before taking photos

    I'd have to travel forward in time first to see what damage he causes with his new ultra right-wing fascistic policies.

    THEN and only then I would decide whether or not the fat orange one lives.

    Gaddamn I really can't wait to see 2020 and what's changed.
