A Question On Morality

I hope I'm justified in starting a new thread for this discussion. But I thought it would be interesting to gather people's opinion on questions like this-

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.
===============================================

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 George W. Bush! 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 George W. Bush, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize-winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful politicians.

===============================================

THE QUESTION

Here's the question, and please give an honest answer:

Would you select high contrast colour film?

OR

Would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?

Mr. Crook! Why would I mind? 😉 . Of course this would be an interesting discussion.

Let us see what CEans have to say about this.

the perfect twist

What a question !!

I will use a black & white film. It would bake the picture look like a 'classic' and I might earn money by selling it to newspapers or magazines. It will also win me Pulitzer Prize !

Besides I will be saving the world ! :sshhh:

You were not asked if you would save him. Read the question again !
