When doing extremely wide field of the sky with a close Earth bound subject I still have not decided where it is best to focus. In this photo of the sea dragon, I have focused on the dragon, and the stars are a bit out of focus. In recent photos I have posted on AstroBin, I focused on the star field. I tend to feel that focusing on the foreground is the most aesthetically pleasing, but of course this is an astronomy site, so maybe this audience prefers the focus on the stars.
