War Cemetary „Lohrer Wald“ (49°50'21.52"N; 7°49'38.21“E / 32U 415678 5521508) Tucked away in the midst of an untroubled woodland, there is one of the numerous war cemetaries bestowed upon Europe by the savagery of WW II, summoned up by Nazi Germany. This is the final resting place of more than 2.000 bodies gathered from temporary graves at battlefields and POW camps in the vicinity. The serenity of the surroundings is in stark contrast to the circumstances under which those who lie here must have perished. It is almost as if the generation of survivors wanted to hide their sorrow and guilt in the dense patch of forest. The caption of the memorial plaque in the entrance hall translates „You who were sacrificed no longer see the sun and the stars, but you live in the hearts of those who believe“. This is a somewhat ambiguous statement, to be found in a number of German war cemeteries built in the early 1950ies, when coming to terms with the atrocities of the recent past was still a work in in progress, and the private and public sentiment oscillated between denial and shame. The fact that this cemetary contains the remnants of predominantly German soldiers, prisoners of war and civilians is not my point here. As in a previous post (https://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/257654-black-and-white-image-thread/?p=3490492) I explicitely dissociate myself from any attempts at historic revisionism, relativism or exculpation. The point is, that this graveyard contains lost lives, many of them cut short in their teens. Their heritage to us should be an obligation towards peace and a comittment to civilization.

Hi all - haven't been very active on here - but promise some images soon! Anyway to the point - I've been really happy with my used T camera purchased in April but have mostly been using for images of my ceramic work that I make. I have been using the Voigtlander 35 1.4 Nokton Classic and also the Leica Elmarit-M 90 2.8, with some excellent results. However after a trip to Greece this summer felt that I am really missing the wide angle end of the scale! My budget isn't overflowing, but interested in what you all felt I should save up for - How does the original Voigtlander 15mm 4.5 fair on the APSC sensor? Reviews of it on FF were pretty bad! I am going on a trip to India/Nepal next Easter and would like something for all of those sweeping landscapes I am expecting to see, as well as lots of crowded city shots! HELP PS I am damn impressed with the T - I know I am a couple of steps behind their current offering but it has proved itself to be a wonderful little thing!
Hey, I'd like to do some wide-angle portraits. I found these photos and really love both the look and FOV. Can you help me guessing the focal length? https://flic.kr/p/URde7u https://flic.kr/p/VZuu21 I'd imagine he used 28mm or 24mm, or even wider? Maybe the 24mm Lux (because of the bokeh)? Has anyone else here taken similar shots?
