Rainy day in Besalú
After a long pause, here’s a photo chosen for the time of the year it was taken (mid-April) and as a sort of continuation from the last critique I wrote. This is the town of Besalú on a rainy spring day and its outstanding landmark, the 12th-century Romanesque bridge over the Fluvià river. The bridge (many photos on TE) features a gateway at its midpoint. When travelling, most of the time you just don’t pick the weather and light conditions that suit best your subject, unless you’re around for a sufficient long time. We were in town for a couple of hours and that happened to be wet and grey. So that has to be the mood of my Besalú photos!

nothing can hide the beauty, even a rainy day. Especially when you take a walk about such a stunning place. Fantastic architecture and you handled the light just perfectly to show the mood. Great job.

I like the subtle reflections in the water which add a little symmetry. The soft diffused light and cloud have allowed maximum shadow detail. The bridge starting in the bottom left corner provides good lead in lines and perspective and the diagonal axis augments the dynamism. Tfs!

This here is really a fantastic architecture, the texture of the stone walls is eye catching, this is a beautifully composed and captured photo, even on a rainy day

A superb composition with this medieval bridge so beautiful, magnificent wonder POV that shows the entire structure of the bridge, as well as the population covering the hill a greyish day which gives a nice soft color.
Good brightness and optimum sharpness.
Enjoy the weekend.
