The Church of St. Francis of Assisi, is a church in the city of Ouro Preto built in rococo style, which is a later step in the evolution of the baroque.
It was classified in 2009 as one of the Seven Wonders of Portuguese Origin.
Its construction began in 1766, with architectural design, the risk cover and ornamental elements as pulpits, altarpiece, toilet and ceiling of the chancel of the mining Antônio Francisco Lisboa, Aleijadinho, and paintings by Manuel da Costa Ataide. Both artists were born respectively in Vila Rica (now Ouro Preto), and Vila do Carmo (Mariana today) are considered the two most important names in Brazilian colonial art.

Hello Richardo - I really like your composition here, the church is really special and here with the pumped up saturation, contrast and the rich reflections you present a shot that cannot be ignored. I like it a lot.

l'architettura è molto bella, sia per le forme, sia per i colori.
Il tuo scatto ne esalta le caratteristiche, c'è una luce splendida che hai sfruttato al meglio includendo un riflesso fantastico.

I wonder if I have ever seen a church of that style before. Decorations remind more of a rococo palace.
Reflection on the pool is almost still, slight waves just add charm. Well framed with the tree on the right edge.

bella sia la composizione quanto il soggetti ed i colori, molto saturi ma non in maniera fastidiosa.
Buona la nitidezza.
Ciao e buona domenica

Wow, what an eye catching presentation of this amazing place! Including in the scene the water reflections of the church was a brilliant idea to make it very unique. Like it a lot! Very well done.

The old Portugues style built church, marvelousely shown on the waterfront, with its reflection under the bright daylight.
Superb colors and chosen perspective. The church edifice is impressive and you attractively applied a wonderful photo.

this is a building of captivating charm, an impressive architectural vision, earnest and elaborate at the same time. Your presentation is wonderful, the church high in the frame looks even more imposing and the reflections in the foreground add to the fascination of the building and its surroundings. The light is lively and has a magical touch, the colours are fantastic. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great Sunday,

This is a very intricate and pretty church building. Your photo shows it in all its grandeur. The deep colors look wonderful and the reflections off the pool introduce great symmetry.

this is extraordinary picture - my sincere congratulations! The church is stunning with all the architectural details, but the best part of the photo is this ideal reflection on the water which makes the composition so much more interesting.
Great quality in terms of colors, contrast and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

Não me lembro desse lago em frente à igreja, mas ficou muito bom, o reflexo deu um realce à grande obra. A nitidez e as cores ficaram excelentes, e o enquadramento também. Bom trabalho!
