Artist's Description

<b>For the fatherland</b>

<i>The first world war. The “great” war. The biggest failure in the 20th century.
We still have to live with the consequences. The second world war was one of them.
10 million casualties, 20 million injured soldiers. Civil casualties are estimated with 7 million persons. I hope, the world will never see a war that big and cruel.
A famous quote from DeGaulle: “There were victors and beaten ones. We all have lost.”

The picture was taken in the cementery Ohlsdorf in Hamburg, Germany. It’s one of the biggest cementeries in the world (2nd or 3rd place I think). It’s aranged like a park.
It’s a HDR with 8 exposures. I worked with the gradients and colour saturation. Feel free to comment and critique.</i>
