A word about selective focus: SELECTIVE.
The whole purpose of this too often mis-used technique
is to isolate the eye on a particular area of the photograph.
It has other uses as well, but they are less important.
It is also a method of ‘deconstructing’ the image,
as though saying  that the photograph is natural, unaffected,
not created with the great skill of a ‘professional.’
The point of this is that the food looks great and is appetizing,
without any affectation or modification.
But the point is lost it the focus isn’t carefully placed.
