Every fifteen minutes, the ringing of the bell of the beautiful Nossa Senhora da Conceição church, which is in the heart of the city, reminds us that the religiosity of the city and the people of Carrancas is everywhere.
The construction, historical and cultural heritage of Carrancas, dates from the first half of the eighteenth century and is located in Praça Manoel Moreira, the scene of the main celebrations that involve the community, such as the Feast of Our Lady of Conception, on December 8.
The construction is all in quartzite, formed by blocks of up to one ton. The ceiling painting of the altar is also attributed to Joaquim José da Natividade, a disciple of Aleijadinho, and the altar altarpieces have gold paintings, as well as a beautiful wooden carving. Under the floor were buried many of the first inhabitants of the city, custom common at the time.

The bells ring every fifteen minutes?? But I suppose that people are so accustomed that they od not take notice of it. Interesting architecture of this church. Fantastic sky with so many stars. Excellent night picture.
Kind regrads MAlgo

The bells ring every fifteen minutes during the night is disturbing, but maybe a tradition.
Your picture is wonderful taken.
Perfect clear and sharp.
Also a nice depth and perspective.
Colours and presentation are very nice.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Easter weekend,

An immaculate 25sec, exposure on this night shot, must be a complete darkness for an ISO reading of 3200.
A perfect sight with the stars, the church white domes and the surrounding fence.
Bravo e bom fim de semana,

Bonjour, cher ami Ricardo,
Vous nous offrez une superbe carte postale (dans le bon sens du terme).
Nous avons l'impression de rêver les yeux ouverts.

Excellent night scene of stars and church.
Great job for capturing this.
You need darkness otherwise you cannot capture the stars so clearly.

Une des plus belles photos de la journée. La technique de photo de nuit est irréprochable mais ce sont les étoiles dans le ciel qui prennent la vedette avec les beaux clochers blancs.

A very attractive church and a very attractive photo, I thing the exposure in the exif data is wrong, your exposure was for sure longer to achieve the effect of starry sky, I like the result very much

Que maravilha de foto da igreja com esse céu estrelado, a exposição ficou perfeita! Excelentes cores e nitidez também! Taí um bom jeito de conseguir fotografar uma praça assim bem vazia, em um horário bem inusitado! Lindo trabalho!

Bela igreja, porém o destaque nesta foto é esse céu estrelado que demonstra seu talento e excelente técnica fotográfica!
Parabéns, abração e até mais,
