Help: Where should I focus on...?
I tried taking a pic of a small bamboo tree and none of it is in focus or sharp.
Here's the link to the pic,
I focus on the tree and a tripod was use.
Is it because I focused on the wrong point or there are more reasons to this poor result?

If I am not wrong, your shutter speed setting is too slow. If you look at your picture, the lines of the walls are in focus. But the bamboo that you took is not.

Try taking the shot at a higher shutter speed. Choose a shutter speed of at least 1/60 and compare with your previous picture. Hope this helps.
