From where I see it, failure is not an option for the commercial shooter. Never has been. But in the present business model for photography it is an increasing occurrence which prevents me from saying 'never will be'.
For me, that is good. Coz I get called to come and fix other people's stuff-ups. Stuff-ups often generated by the notion that professional photography is a matter of buying a camera and hanging out your shingle and bugger all else.
In the 60s when I got into the game there was an unofficial apprenticeship of working your way up through the studio and learning the trade. Not just how cameras, lenses, lights and chemicals worked, but all the other problem solving that crops up along the way. Not a small part of that ephemera of shooting was the psychology of handling problem clients on a shoot or others like models and hangers-on.
In commercial pursuits there is a purpose. And that purpose becomes the aim point. Miss that target once and you may be granted the compassion to live to shoot again - but don't count on such grace being extended with any sort of recurring frequency. As I said, failure is not an option.
Recreational shooting CAN be as stringent but doesn't need to be. In my own life I have a hard-won division of commercial and recreational endeavours. I say 'hard-won' because after a lifetime of shooting with the discipline of commercial objectives, it is actually bloody hard to let go of the rigours of satisfying the client - rigours that CAN lead to repetition, predictability and cliché - and just get to the risky path of flow of consciousness shooting where failure is a constant travelling companion ..... and possibly a necessary part of the process.
Relating this back to the OP: it doesn't matter a damn that the image is not as finely focussed as it could be. The image itself is rewarding which is a lot more than can be said for many posted pictures which might be sharper. On the basis that the author expressed concern with the sharpness I suggested revisiting the scene if it mattered to him.
