Default Renaissance, almost finished and need some help

Hey guys i havent posted in a while, I have been working on this project for a while and its practically finished but i have a big problem everything in the scene is pretty big and you know what happens when you have huge things on the scene you cant view the whole thing, so i need some help how can i configure the camera to have a higher depth of field and to be able to see everything even though is huge, and i cant make the characters smaller because the textures look wrong when i do that.

I hope i make myself clear of what i mean

Heres an attached image so you can see the problem

What you need to do is select the camera you want to look through in the Outliner, then go into the attribute editor and change the Far Clip Plane setting from 1000 to a higher value, till you can see the whole scene. I have attached an image of what you need to change.

U can change the scale of the texture on your wall so it looks bigger/further away by adjusting the "place2dTexture node in the hypershader.
