Just for the record, here is another one, first pretty much SOOC with only a bit of exposure correction, and then with my usual processing routine.

Thank you for the sample and the reference to the other thread confirms the look of the out of focus areas, in the sample image you provided the upper left show quite obvious the difference :)

The sharpening plugins that I use work on a certain radius, and that often coincides with the radius of details in the bokeh, so of course the bokeh is emphasized. If you look at the sharpening of the details in the face of the statue you will see the same kind of sharpening, which I find desirable. But the basic character of the bokeh is not really changed. Have a look at this, which is without any sharpening

Yes, a distinct enhancement of the basic Bokeh character
