I decided to target the angel figurine as my subject. I'll sometimes use the Andromeda VariFocus plugin, which I used here to affect the foreground. I don't have a version of VariFocus which is compatible with Photoshop CS so I had to open the file in Photoshop 6 to handle that stage. I closed it and quit PS-6 and then opened the file in Photoshop CS. I selected the plant, its shadow, the wall behind the set and copied that to a new layer to use the Lens Blur filter which adds nice specular highlights to the image around the leaves and so forth. This seems to add a lot of the DOF dimension which would normally be present in f2.4. THe image dynamics seem very natural to me. After that, I had to do some minor edge work around the figurine and the foreground subject to complete the image. Thanks for the challenge!

Thank you! Remember that it was a combination of VariFocus in PS-6, Lens Blur in PS-CS and Gauss though.
