On my dog walk, the sun highlighted this tree.

Leica Monochrom 1 Voigtländer Nokton 1.5/50. A bit of PS to tidy up the background.

This is really special. I love the luminosity on the tree and the blurred background. Well done.

The light really shines here (pun intended?) and works especially well with the b&w. Most times, it’s warm, striking light in color where light like this makes a difference. So goes to show how strong and how well the light is showcased - in b&w

Great job separating with the selective focus and DOF. Only suggestion I have is a slight crop from the top to remove the upper part of the tree, to complete the “tidying up”.

Like this quite a lot.
