Ok here's my explaination
I drove down with my wifey and happened to be there slightly later than the optimal time window for a better shot (as mentioned by other kind members of the forum). Experimented with many shots before i decided to keep this one (Am a noobie, didn't expect much yet. Still learning the ropes). As for the 2 front trees, i thought of including it cos the sky over the mountain ridges looks rather empty. As for the accidental inclusion of the tree on the left, its my mistake will lookout for such mistakes in future.
