Santa Teresa is spectacular for shooting buildings, architecture and people -- you can take the cable car up. Also some great views of Rio.

Just be careful with your stuff -- I've wandered all around there with a Canon D80....but anything can happen in Rio. (I've been 6 times now with no problems whatsoever -- but take precautions)

I wish I had a 5dmk11 - I have 30D.

What's with all the precautions about Rio?
