Kostis thanks for the close ups.
The quality of all details is very high. I can even see the snake now.
Also I love the quality of the pictures&lighting.
Your use of the background is a little unsure and diverse : sometimes its abstract, or work in progress style, later its figurative or realistic. Was it difficult for you to make a choice how to present your otherwise perfect and professional looking work?

Yes I agree. Very interesting idea.
The angle in which the screen is used makes much difference. It will be very difficult to get a perfect result like with a printed picture background. The computerscreen will only work perfect when your camera is at groundlevel with your diorama and the screen directed both horizontally and vertically at right angles with the camera.
Above is an angle not right so the image gets dark and even darker towards the corner.
Positioning the background at a right angle towards the camera (not towards the diorama base) gives a much better, lighter and equal effect:
But here the reflection of the screen can be seen as withe bars. Positioning the camera with diorama base will help and also does more justice to the perspective.
Also your use of a pronounced diorama edge makes it more difficult:
The size of most screens is limited. We could think of using a huge flatscreen TV for a bigger image.
The extremely high quality of your diorama makes it worth continuing the photographic experiment with using the digital background.
