 Great presentation of a classic set!
The printed background works well.

Great to see, a wonderful rendition of all factors in creating a diorama.  I admire the painting and staging.  Well done, and appreciate the amount of effort and work put into the presentation.  As for lighting the scene and arranging the flat figures, I suspect many issues can now be worked out with photography software.  The manual factors are still important of course.  Something I would like to learn more about.

I know this set, of excellent quality and engraving.
Your painting is beautiful and give a nice view on the bottom picture.


The insertion into a diorama is a very nice attemps with the landscape provided with four plans: the characters, the trees, impressive, the castle on its rock and the far-end landscape on the right side.


Do I understand correctly that the first image is in natural ambiant light, with the characters lightened by the room lightening and cast shadows of the top of the box on the upper side, and the middle picture has a lightening inside the top of the box towards the landscape, bringing the characters in shadow?


It is the difficulty of diorama in a box: how to give a proper lightening on such a way that the characters are not merged in their background with a good lightening and that attentiĆ on and priority is given to them !


Opinion of other readers would be welcome:
- retro lightening?
- more distance and depth between background and characters in the front?
- darker painting of the background, but it is interesting to lighten the landscape also?
- paint the background with no sharp details, but rather a bit blurry?
- combine any of the above?


Congratulation however for this diorama: we see very little of them here, ad therefore are less familiar with the factors to obtain a good visual balance between the subjects ad the background...

This Works shows a noble lady on her travel in the time 1500. The figures series is a old Series for the figures exchange in Kulmbach in 1957. The figures are all engraver from the "Godfather" of engravers Ludwig Frank. The trees are from Ruesner, Dresden.
