Hi I believe that 1.BXf5 it's good too, because black can't take the bishop. 1...,GXF5, 2.QH5+,KG7; 3.BXD6,QXD6; 4.NHXF5+,BXF5; 5.NXF5+ and black lose the queen or 1...,BXF5; 2.QXE7+,KXE7; 3.BXD6+,KXD6; 4.NHXF5+,GXF5; 5.NXF5+,KD7; 6.NXH6 and black lose all king side pawns.

After 1.Bxf5 Black has 1...Qxh4! and if 2.Bxe6+ Nxe6 3.Bxd6 Nxd4 black gets some nasty threats along the h-file with Rh8.
