I like that there crazy bokee.
I recently sold my Planar 50 1.4, which I used if I was ever asked to produce professional portraits (this happened once — by my sister-in-law, who mostly didn't want to pay someone). Ninety-nine percent of my shooting is candids, street ... so if I want to do portraits, I usually have time, and medium format is better suited. And that crazy bo-kee is perfect for portraits. IMHO...that photo of the tree is great. I think you ought to consider keeping you're Yashica.
An aside... in my first college photography class, I wasn't entirely new to photography but close to it. I was using a Canon Rebel my dad had got me for Christmas a few years earlier. There was a kid in class who was using a Yashica with the Yashikor, and when it came to crit time, I always admired the images he had — and this image reminds me of that.
