This was taken in Cordova, a small town at the southern tip of Mactan Island. At the end of the broadwalk is where local boats arriving from neighbouring islands dock. Surprisingly, the area still has a big mangrove population. Neighbouring islands include Olango Island which is a protected bird sanctuary.

Wonderful compostion that displays great depth looking straight down this unique boardwalk to silver sea and junle green. Ones eye can't miss the intricate details to the handsome walk.

Hi Renier. Cebu is certainly a wonderful place to visit. Home of many of the countries singers and entertainers working in many countries around the region. The photo has good composition/perspective and clarity. Murray.

Nice POV, giving an interesting perspective. Good sharpness.
What is the material of the bridge's hanrail? concrete?
Preetie (433) 2007-08-04 22:25
Love the pattern of the boards on the bridge and the muted tunes. Great frame.Thanks for sharing.
bethel (359) 2007-08-04 23:30
Very nice symmetry here and great use of colour. I feel as though this boardwalk is leading to something and your note helps to explain it. Well done.

Hello Renier. Only this bridge, water and something forest in the background. The bridge seems to run in the infinite. But it actually expects the boats occasionally putting on of the neighbour island. The geometrical forms of the bridge and the emptiness of this landscape constitute the attraction of this documentary photo. Best regards, Wolfgang.

There is no question where I have to go here!
I notice the lamps, some of them ahs suffered some damage...
Cannot possibly be Olango we see in the back, but maybe to the far right?
Well framed subject!

This is my way of thinking about photography, so I have a pair for Your shot. Another land another place but the same idea.
have a nice weekend!
gary91 (15348) 2007-08-05 1:49
Although it is a classical seaside subject, your composition is very good and nicely constructed. The place seems huge and I like this light grey and mild light.
Have a nice day.
Best regards, Christian

Excellent composition of this walkway that seems to go on forever. Beautiful tones in the woodwork that seem to complement the water. Perfect depth and clarity.
Burberry1 (6041) 2007-08-05 2:48
Wonderful wide angle which leads aour eyes to the end of the bridge!!
Perfect symetry and idea!

looks a bit like a bridge to nowhere ;-)
Strong depth impression with the perspective and small line of the sky. Good exposure for good textures.
Lieben Gruss, Ulf

I like this simple composition. Excellent picture once again!

Great composition and POV Renier also colours and sharpness are outstanding , compliments .
siolaw (38288) 2007-08-06 2:04
It offers a strong perspective to the viewer, with sharp details and subdued colors adding to the mood of loneliness, due to the absence of people
syd1946 (18663) 2007-08-06 2:21
Excellent point to take the shot including the bridge and the wonderful perspective.Nice peaceful atmosphere to walk and relax!
Have a nice day,

Precioso puente que lleva al infinito.
Estupenda composición y magnífico color.
evanrizo (456) 2007-08-06 3:01
Hi Renier, your bridge images are stunning, you show us images with a great-great depth.
This has also a very good sharpness and excellent lightness.
delic (6735) 2007-08-07 0:27
Cordova seems to be a universal name for towns. There is even one is Alaska. A well-composed image of the boardwalk with tremendous depth and minimal sky. Having a local walking on it would perhaps be a welcome cliche. Regards,
bibik (2784) 2007-08-07 1:05
Fine perspective and excellent composition.
brevbrev14 (140) 2007-08-07 1:33
Hi Renier, anothe image with a very good perspective and view..
i like your idea and compo here!
jaywalker (16101) 2007-08-07 4:49
Hi Renier, A wonderful POV giving magnificent depth, excellent balance & perfectly composed, I keep looking at the cross paneling on the side of the boardwalk & can't work out what is on it? I like the photo though, kind regards Wilson.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2007-08-07 5:00
Very good framing on the basis of the corners inferieurs of the photograph and going towards the island without being symetric. Beautiful realization. Congratulations.
jemaflor (86054) 2007-08-07 5:23
Well taken to give a very good depth at your view, good sharpness and symetric effect ... a girl walking would be interesting effect for your composition.
Cretense (68691) 2007-08-07 6:43
this is THE perfect perspective! the lines starting from the cornes lead the eye to the infinity. Great composition and nice colours despite the cloudy weather. Congratulations!
Cricri (108037) 2007-08-07 10:23
Excellent cadrage qui donne une parfaite perspective de cette promenade qui invite a suivre ....."pour faire un petit blongeon"
trés belle réalisation, bravo
agbonavita (0) 2007-08-07 11:12
A simple and common photo but that still works with a nice view of the islands on the background. Maybe a more pretty day, with more blue sky and some clouds using a very slow speed with a ND filter could gave some diferent ascpect to it, why not try?
pierrefonds (57951) 2007-08-07 12:36
A nice image of nroadwalk, of the sea and of the forest, the photo has a good composition, DOF and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.
Angshu (56060) 2007-08-08 0:58
A very nice perspective shot, very symmetrical & good use of the wide. Well composed and captured.
gildasjan (41702) 2007-08-08 2:10
Seul je marche sur les planches et je pense.Une belle image qui invite à se diriger vers l'horizon.Le chemin central est ici justifié.Beau travail.
jhm (140619) 2007-08-08 3:39
You chose a very good angle for the at most perspective.
These pier lead us very depth to the water, this care for depth in this lovely image.
Also the handrail to both sides are a nice decoration.
danos (87891) 2007-08-08 5:38
the wooden jetty that penetrate your composition create a great depth of field in your shot.The greenery earth in the background,is a nice end after the walking on the bridge.Excellent the light and the colours.Well done Renier.
luiscar (3286) 2007-08-08 5:46
me gusta como has trabajado esta imagen con ese POV bajo, consiguiendo una buena perspectiva y simetria.
buena color y definición
chrisnet (21092) 2007-08-08 9:40
The perspective is good, you have well frame this wooden bridge, well seen and done.
atus (15838) 2007-08-08 14:44
The sense of depth is fantastic here and the overall sharpness very good. The light is well managed and the colours are natural.
Well done! Tfs and best wishes.

Hola Renier, Preciosa foto con un motivo bonito y un buen color y composición !
devimeuxbe (58557) 2007-08-09 13:01
You like the long perspectives. It's a beautifull composition but it could be better with a human touch.
jmcl (14535) 2007-08-09 15:03
A great use of perception .. great dimension .. great feeling of the silvery water .. the old feeling of the wood .. the texture of the supports and railing .. very nice ..

belle photo de cette construction qui ressemble a un embarcadère ou on a envie de flaner, s' assoir au bout, contempler ce paysage a l' autre bout,celui que l' on ne sait pas atteindre.bonne netteté,beau regard. Amitiés Thomas
IgorDeleze (585) 2007-08-12 7:56
WOW ! That's an impressive "infinite" perspectiv!
elmec (12210) 2007-08-12 8:33
Such a lovely shot!
I like the perspective with running far away path!
feather (51130) 2007-08-15 7:08
You have outstanding depth and focus on this; the first board is pin sharp. The strong perspective is perfect for leading us right into the frame. There is something very appealing about the natutal, muted colours. Very tranquil.
mikeo (12129) 2007-08-27 12:14
so simply but so great photo, very good perspective, nice colours giving so special climate to the pic and so good sharpeness.
faubry (35405) 2007-09-11 3:38

MarcT (20964) 2007-10-07 11:19
I love this symmetrical picture with lots of little "broken pieces". Few colors and yet full of different levels.
