I started by creating a mask layer. The little angel in the middle was chosen to be at the camera focal plane, therefore I masked her out. I then continued masking everything partially out, depending on how far from the small statue they were. The back curtain and the front angel were completely left in.

Next, I turned my mask into a selection, then I performed a circular blur with a radius of ~20 pixels. (NOTE: I modified the FileterMeister Gaussian Blur to be a circle blur).

Next, I had to clean things up a little, since things bled in a way I did not expect.

Enjoy!
Jeff

Great job of making the little figurine stand out.

I think this is a really great result!
I wanted to try and use the custom filter to make a customized blur but couldn't find my notes how to do it anymore

ps. I would blur the first figurine a tad more than the rest.

I think this works very well. If you wish to help the focus a bit more, consider desaturating some of the out of focus areas. Our eyes tend to do this naturally.

In my humble opinion, I think you have made the best attempt so far at getting the field of view correct. Very good job indeed.
