I couldn't look at the photos...'cause I don't read or write Chinese lol........but it's one thing I looked for re-watching his programs.........no starfish hands. I'm sure it takes some concentration breaking a habit like that. I did also notice that his hands are more expressive.....although in Patrick's case, he uses his complete body to express himself. He skates into the ice and out to the rafters. That's one of the reasons why his skating really apeals to me. He uses his edges and superb balance in conjuction with his whole body to combine with the music.........wonderful to watch.....especially live when one can see the speed as well.

However, with one exception, I can list them separately for you.
Look Ma, no starfish hands!

SkateFiguring, one has to register on that website in order to see them.
eta. Maybe you need Chinese language support enabled on your computer, like Japanese font support is needed for viewing their Nationals protocols. Not sure if it's the case here. You can enable your Eastern Asian Languages on Windows, for Japanese, Chinese, and Korean. Very enabling languages for skating fans, don't you think?

I could see the third one, the seventh one, and the eighth one. The rest, I can't.

Let me tell you, I find more photos on the Chinese forum than the big skating forums, many of them never seen around here. They are quite resourceful.
Here's a photo thread, 56 pages:

No, the ones that I couldn't see says the picture is available only to Baidu users.
Any way, it is very clear that Patrick has used his hands and wrists beautifully in Aranjuez.

That's odd. I'm not a member.
Can you see the separate pics I linked?
