How to identify main subject of the photo and set focus?

I am using Nikon D5600.

While on street photo shoot, I clicked a couple of photos and submitted on one of the stock photo website. Few photos got approved whereas few were rejected with a comment.

In most photos the comment was:

"The subject is not in focus"

In general, I wanted to click a photo of a shop with artificial jewelry. Similarly, a photo with a man crafting a stone. Both the photos got rejected.

I am unable to determine how to set focus on the subject when you are taking a photo of a shop. There is no particular subject like a Bird, Fruit etc.

For a wider subject, for instance jewelry in a shop, which focus mode to be used ? I probably used: AF-S, Single/Wide point.
