Tree and new leaves

Canon 5D ISO400 1/125s f5.6 50mm

I believe this was my second or third attempt in making a picture of this tree. I wanted to show the whole tree with its leaves, in their special pale new green colors. I made probably three to four attempts to develop this in Lightroom before finally landing on this color revision.

Another difficulty is controlling the depth of field. The tree, due to its round dimensions, needs a larger field to be in focus, and it's tremendously difficult to determine if a leave is in focus on the camera screen under sunlight.
