To my 1000th I choose that one since Jesus Statue is the most famous place in Rio. Thanks for all visits and I hope bring up more 1000 photos (at least).
Christ the Redeemer an Art Deco statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro. It was considered the largest Christ statue in the world from 1931 until 2010 when it was topped by the Christ the King statue in Poland. It is 30 metres (98 ft) tall, not including its 8 metres (26 ft) pedestal, and its arms stretch 28 metres (92 ft) wide.
The statue weighs 635 tonnes (625 long, 700 short tons), and is located at the peak of the 700-metre (2,300 ft) Corcovado mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city. A symbol of Brazilian Christianity, the statue has become an icon for Rio de Janeiro and Brazil. It is made of reinforced concrete and soapstone, and was constructed between 1922 and 1931.

Congratulations on 1000 photos! I like the close up view of this very famous statue. With a bit of greenery, and a lovely blue sky, it's a beautiful image.

Hello Andre, Congratulations for your 1000 photos and I am looking forward to seeing the next 1000 (and then the next...) Creative composition of the famous statue, I do not remember such a view. Nice idea and excellent realization.
From New 7 Wonders of the World it is the only one I haven't seen. I should come to Rio
