Thank you LadyFinn for sharing the photo, I rather like it! It's fresh and modern feeling. Madeleine has beautiful eyes.

As an amateur photographer myself, to me the blurring looks like it was just how the camera focused when the photographer took the photo. Since Madeleine is the main subject of the photo, the photographer probably wanted her face to be sharper than the background to focus more on her. I have a DSLR camera and when I take portraits and other photos, I've noticed that the same thing happens, and I actually rather like this effect. The main object that I want to photograph is sharper than the background, which blurs or goes out of focus.
