f/2.8 (reverse aperture)
For the trouble I went through to actually get this render to the finish line, it totally wasn't worth it. The DOF is just fine to me, though I know most will think it's too shallow. That is also just fine for me. The HDRI is somewhat subtle, only appearing on certain parts of the reflection map, but it's effective where it needs to be. The digital bokeh is a joke, but the sampling looks great with the hexagonal apperture to represent an actual bokah. I like the colors, the composition, the placement. There's plenty of depth and just enough falloff.
Well that's it guys. Ridiculousness...
