An Ethical Dilemma

This test only has one question, but it’s a very important one. By answering the question honestly, you will discover where you stand morally.  The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation  in which you will have to make a decision. Your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

You are in Miami, Florida. There is chaos all around you, caused by a hurricane, with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical  proportions.  You are a photo/journalist, working for a major newspaper, and you are  caught in the middle of this disaster. Yet you are attempting to shoot career-making photos.  Suddenly, you see two men floundering in the water. They are fighting  
for  their lives, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move  
closer.  Somehow the men appear familiar. You suddenly realise who they are.  
It’s  George W. Bush and Tony Blair!

You have two options. You can either attempt to save their lives, or you
can shoot dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photos, documenting the  demise
of two of the most powerful men on earth.
So, here’s the question:

 Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white ?
