    just a couple of weeks ago. My friends who are heavily into it invited me along to get some pictures. This was one of my better efforts.

    Maybe it's just me, but I always find these photo's really difficult. They end up looking strange and unwieldy. Or is that just me?

    Not really. There is a Taiwanese sculptor who made a series of sculptures based on Tai Chi, won him lots of fame. If he can capture the essence with sculpture, surely you can do it with photography too.

    BTW they look like they are doing some slow motion action in Matrix:)

    maybe if you tried to focus on one person instead of the group. Especially if you got their shadow...

    I agree, you should only focus on person and catch the moment when he is so into it.

    That's why I said ????

    Seems rude to laugh at the subject of someone's posting.

    I take no offense. People are fully entitled to their opinions. However, I certainly wouldn't say it's a waste of time. Especially not for my friend who up until a year ago could barely walk with the arthritis that plagued her body, and since starting tai chi has regained the full use of her legs, if not more than the average healthy thirty year old female, and she's 56!
