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. Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet
spontaneous. Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.

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. Nature is unleashing
all of its destructive fury.

High contrast color

It should sell better to the various news organizations. Then I'd get my story straight so I could explain, with no possibility of impunity, why I couldn't attempt a rescue. Good question.

in a situation like this a black and white photo is more dramatic.

America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall. If you don't stand behind our troops, PLEASE feel free to stand in front of them!
