Very nice. Seems like a nice location.

5th image is a little dark though, since he's against the light.

Great shots! I love the background...the only pic that throws me off is #1 with the skyline being off-kilter - but regardless, nice shots...

I LOVE these shot's I am a very big martial arts fan myself but unfortunatly we don't have any school's in my area that teaches Shaolin Kungfu or Wushu
I have been practicing alot of Tai Chi though

Nice work!

Wonderful location to take these pictures. The early morning, (or late afternoon) light also adds to the beauty of the art-form. A couple of these shots would have benefited from a little flash-fill, but overall very nice images.

clean shots, good poses, I like the second one the most, very pleasing flowing strong lines from the "lance" as it runs perpendicular with the leg. Nice work

Nice,. I like the composition in two the best... though you may even consider taking the top crop down so far that the horizon is not showing at all ?

I think #4 could be better if you shifted the crop so the model was more to the right.. ie: crop just to the right of his hand,.. and if possible open up the left side some more.

Great shots.

I thought Wushu was pancakes with Hoison sauce?

MMM I like the idea and the subject matter, but not the location. Blends into the clothing.
Anyway you could do them in differnt color outfits?

As Mr. Miyagi said: Wax on, Wax off, grasshopper.

Very nice shots, indeed. Great stances too.
