Could also the so-called "3D effect" have more to do with the subject matter and whether or not the background distance and fast aperture combination helps to separate the background or foreground from the subject?

It is difficult to comment on the "3D effect" - a picture is worth, well you know what it's worth. Sorry the EXIF data of f-stop is missing (my guess is it is around 2.4, not wide open). I would say there is far more to it than simple shallow depth of field. I think the 35 f/2.0 just has better bokeh than the typical normal to wide lens, and the color is very mindful of Pentax on film.
