I've done some (for 2 years). It's really an incredible activity.
A great portrait. She's obviously concentrated.

@zOOm: I think this is my 6th or 7th year, and I agree it's a great activity. Han is an excellent teacher and mentor!

I have such awe for these folks. It really is an art form they practice. Such beauty and grace of expression. If this is going to be a series I'm really looking fwd to it (hint, hint...).

Her expression of peacefulness and total concentration are fantastic. Great capture. It´s an almost tender portrait. A face to look at for a long time.
