Make your focal point where the camera is and use DOF.

You can also try rendering with the z channel turned on in your globals. This way, when you go to composite you can use a filter to achieve the depth your looking for. Im not sure which compositing program you use but in shake there are filters specifically designed for Z depth(as Im sure all the other have as well). You will be able to adjust the blur, fog, whatever you want and you can adjust the gradual effect from fromt to rear.
