Trends Maroczy Bind 2012

Here is a recent game in the Maroczy Bind. There are no spectacular tactical blows. White manages to squeeze black into submission with a serious of typical positional tools.

Position 1
White has made some progress on the queenside and is well positioned. Nd5 commands the center and is about to push b5.

Black has not been standing still and has maneuvered in typical fashion with …Qb6-d8-f8 and broken out with 24…f5 to undermine the center or perhaps begin some kingside counterplay. How should white respond?
