all of these images just have a shallow dof except the long exposures. you're probably after the combo of a tighter bokeh (more pop) and faster glass (shallow dof). composition and working with the dof take practice.

i think that making an image appear more realistic, and pop, has a lot to do with composition, and tonal quality.. has to do with how the light shapes the object, and the area around the object..

I've got quite a few that might qualify, taken with my Cosina 100mm f/3.5 macro. Here is a selection of flower shots. For more with this lens, visit my album.

three with various lenses

Pentax K10D ,Pentax smc P-DA 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6
1/90s f/5.6 at 55.0mm iso400

Pentax K10D ,Pentax smc P-A 35-105mm f/3.5 Zoom
1/15s f/5.6 at 35.0mm iso400

Pentax K10D ,Mamiya Sekor 55f/1.4
1/4000s at 55.0mm iso400;plus extension tubes

The extent to which a photo has the 3D effect you're referring to has everything to do with the ability of the lens to focus closely, distance from the subject to the lens, distance from the subject to the background, and aperture.
