It used to be you could always tell a tourist by the camera(s), but these days everyone's a photographer and cameras are ubiquitous!

Great shot!

"...Our Lady of the Olive Tree"? Really?

Not only is your photo amazing, but so is the architecture of this church. Beauty is everywhere!

The photographer placed in the right lower corner created an interesting view to this gothic looking cathedral.

A cafe there?

You took something so common and made it magic. I really like this shot. I enjoy how you make people interesting in pictures. I have much to learn about taking pics of people. Thanks for sharing.

Unexpected elements: the cafe set up right in front of the church (what a great place to hang out); and the tourist; one wonders what has captured her attention away from the gorgeous architecture of your main element, the church...

Her colourful scarf looks nice against all the grays.

Espero que tenha gostado do meu país. A parte velha de Guimarães é muito bonita.
