The Umbrella Ballet with the Chinese State Circus

This was one of the most beautiful acts that I have seen. So much talent, skill and control. I have enhanced the colours on the second photo, following a discussion about lighting, gels and Photoshop. Enjoy this most beautiful act.

Before and After

Shaolin Monks – Chinese State Circus

The Shaolin Monks practice the martial art that is now called Shaolin Kung Fu. They may now perform with the Chinese State Circus, but they are Chan Buddhists and martial arts experts trained in the use of 36 weapons and other fighting techniques. The Shaolin Temple was built in 495AD in the Henan Province China.
