Vigevano is an Italian town in the province of Pavia in Lombardy.
Vigevano is known for having long been 
one of the main shoes production centers in the world, 
it is also said that the Ducale square of Vigevano 
is the most beautiful in Italy.
I show it to you in the evening with Orton effect.

Another heartfelt thanks to the municipality of Vigevano 
and to the Local Police who allowed me to capture 
in absolute freedom their gorgeous Ducale square with my tripod.

What a beautiful square, Mary, and what beautiful architecture - but Italy has so much of that! Italy is also famous for its designer shoes! This is a wonderful scene with perfect symmetry, and your treatment enhances that even more. Well done!

You have captured the symmetry of this so wonderfully, and I like the night view with the lights adding contrast to the deep darks. The Orton effect works beautifully here-just subtle enough to give the scene some extra glow.

Very nice. Consider dodging the main part of the building in the center just a bit to make it the center of focus and not be drowned out as much by the lighting leading up to it.

Thanks E.J. for your attention, but forgive me, my English is not good and I may not have understood what you want to say to me.
Did you mean to lighten the church in the central part so that it does not look even darker than the lights?
I publish the same photo taken at a different time (the sky was still clear) and without the Orton effect.
