Entirely made of bamboo, this hanging bridge has become a tourist attraction in Bohol Province.
The bridge shakes sideways and bounces up and down as 10-20 people try to cross back and forth when I took my turn. Though clearly sturdy, it could nonetheless be unnerving, especially when one looks down - about 30 feet above the Loboc River.
Decided to spotlight center of the photo to offer a distinct profile of the bridge and the people crossing. Tell me what you think.

Hi Noogy. A great composition here. I really like it. Nice shadows and colours. I think the same composition without people on the bridge could also look good.

I like your composition very much. The dark border of leaves all the way around does highlight the bridge and people. It's interesting the way the end of the bridge leads your eyes off into the village. The bridge looks a little scary but the people look very comfortable up there. Good shot!

I like how you composed the picture and placed the focal point at the center. This bridge is popular with visitors and locals alike.
I have visited and taken photos of this bridge and I beg to differ with your notes. This bridge is supported by 4 steel cables, two underneath and two at the top. The top ones serve as the handrails. The bottom cables are connected to the top cables with vertical tension steel rods. A bamboo structure cannot support this span. It spans the Loboc River and not a lake. This bridge is in the town of Tikbao.
