Superb, Luizinho!!! LOL

Oi... Uma foto espetacular, tudo nela está 5 estrelas...


uma foto muito boa! Não conhecia :) as cores, composição, luz estão muito boas!

Fantastic shot. Only maybe a frame could have been nice. I like the background as well. Eventhough it is almost the same color, it still makes a good contrast. Well Done.
