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”.
