    distracting: the white out of focused bamboo

    A it f cropping would help with the out-of-focus element. Don't get rid of it, just some of it.

    awesome, but i would have had the out of focus part in focus.

    So this is just what happens sometimes- our eyes see the length of the bamboo and think "Ooh! Length!" and then our cameras just don't translate it well. Length is a vanishing point, very elusive to illustrate in 2-dimensional art. Strongest: The brick as bokeh in the background gives a nice compliment to the linear quality of the bamboo. Distracting: Well- you said it: That out of focus bit. You don't usually want that out of focus bit to overwhelm more than a third of your frame- is a balance issue.
