I think that's a metter of personal preference. Selective focus is appropriate, IMHO, for simple photos that have one center of interest. This, of course, includes many portraits, product phots, etc. But it isn't appropriate in most landscapes or other complex images in which one might want to let your eye wander around through various parts of the image, just as you would if you were in the place where the landscape was taken.
Most of the time I tend to prefer pix in which I can wander freely through the image without feeling that my aging eyes are making it hard to see detail.
I will have to admit that I don't recall being bothered by unnecessary blur in any of your photos, either posted on LuLa or on your website.
