A Moral Dilemma

At Motella we are constantly measuring our own moral standards.

A dear reader has sent us a simple test that will only take one minute and only has one question, but it's very important one.

By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.

Remember that your answer needs to be honest, yet spontaneous.

Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line..


You are in Kaitaia.

There is chaos all around you caused by a cyclone, with severe flooding.

This is a flood of biblical proportions.

You are a photo-journalist 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 into the water.

Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.


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 realise who it is.

It's Hone Harawera.

You notice that the raging waters are about to take him under forever.

You have two options:

1. You can save his life; or

2. You can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the country's "most honest politicians!"


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

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