Editor’s Note: We really liked this image because of the great use of focussing to create the blur of the flowers in the foreground, we think that it really adds interest to the image and forces the viewer’s attention onto the girl in the right hand-side of the frame. We also love the pose of the model as this creates a narrative to the image. The use of a short depth-of-field in the background also helps to centre the viewer’s focus.
Editor’s Note: Our Chroma Highlight features the unique world of Cristina Venedict’s digital brush and with this brush she tells us that “I want to encourage people to dream.” And she does so, with vivid fairy tale like scenes where the viewer is easily drawn in, and never wants to leave.

I entered the world of photography and of the magic lens at a time when the real world, the world I was living in, didn’t offer me the freedom I needed. I had taken my degree, I was a psychologist and I felt like I wasn’t really myself, like that world wasn’t mine… And then, there’s that phrase: “Ask and you shall receive” – it worked for me.
