Parabéns, Parabéns, Parabéns!
Só quem esteve presente na preparação da foto tem noção do trabalho de equipe que foi necessário... Desde o fantástico fotógrafo, com imensa criatividade, que foi o mentor de toda esta epopeia, aos modelos, que apesar de crianças, se portaram como como verdadeiros profissionais, à nossa Artista "da casa" (passe a imodéstia!), que conseguiu cativar a essência dos personagens animados... Só poderia resultar neste trabalho de excelência, claro! Estamos todos ansiosos por participar em novos desafios!

Jorge: What an amazing batting average! Out of 29 challenges: 8 ribbons and 5 near hits into paydirt. You are certainly extremely talented with a very wide gamut of outstanding images. Your port is most fascinating. With Nemo you showed how a vision can be executed by merging the talents of others with yours. Fantastic and a great visual. Congratulations on your well earned BLUE!
