The Reuss is a river in Switzerland. With a length of 158 kilometres (98 mi), it is the fourth largest river in Switzerland (after Rhine, Aar and Rhone).
Rising in the Gotthard massif, the Reuss runs
through Lake Lucerne and the city of Lucerne, where a pioneering needle dam (just upstream from the Spreuerbrücke) maintains the water level. We walked along this river and it was a very pleasant experience even in the rain.

Luzern is really a beautiful & relaxing city. Very good lighting & colors despite the rain. Best Regards. Latiff.

A nice view of Luzern - and a not everyday one. Again a proof that good photos are possible without sunshine. This grey sky here is an interesting detail.
Greetings from very autumnal Germany!

a great pov you've chosen here and that gray sky makes for a moody shot. The rain takes away the sharpness though - maybe a little more PP? :-))
Thanks and take good care,

a very pleasant composition, rain makes colors and details soft and nice to look at, also well-chosen view-present us with river's long perspective as well as different styles of architecture.

for me it is oversaturated - OK, you had to compensate the weather somehow and finally it is a matter of taste. But more important is the atmosphere and the fact that you have found a beautiful part of a wonderful town.
