During my last visit to the capital of Minas Gerais , Belo Horizonte , I passed by a group of photographers in full practice session at the Praça da Liberdade (Freedom Square) . One of the girls was capturing details in one of the three doors of Memorial Minas Vale.
About the building : Highlight the cultural heritage and mining history as an important source of experiences and emotions - this is the proposed Memorial Minas Gerais - Vale . Located at the corner of Alameda Education with Gonçalves Dias Street , next to the Museum of the Mining and Metal , the space combines contemporary , popular and folkloric events , instigating the visitor to know a little more about the history and characteristics of the state .
Housed in the former building of the State Department of Finance, the building was designed by the architect of the New Capital Construction Commission , José de Magalhães . The building in the eclectic style adopted for all buildings designed by the Construction Commission , was inaugurated along with the new capital , in eighteen hundred and ninety-seven.
Have a nice weekend

I like this very well composed and well cropped photo. It may be simple in a way, but you have made a very elegant composition where the woman breaks the perfect symmetry in a nice way. She also adds colour and life.

Hello Richardo - A very attractively composed shot. The figure makes the image so much more interesting than a simple record of this beautiful façade would be. Nicely managed and pleasing to the eye, I like this.

A capture of a historic building and a good architectural record shot of an eye catching classic facade. Your crop is comfortable allowing the eye to fully concentrate on the composition and this is just wonderful with the right treatments, its bright and crispy clear with excellent colour saturation. The touch of human presence finishes off handsomely. Delightful capture, Congrats, TFS

What a superb observation this! The detail of this facade is amazing and I have no doubts why she was so interested in that subject. Classy and elegant presentation. Like it!
