Is this a composite: No

Hello Peter,
i find this image very intriguing. I love the overall mood, the B/W , and all those dark lines (trees) works for me, but I’m not sure about the left side of the picture. I would try to crop the dominant left bark and the diagonal line.

I like the use of backlight on the leaves, it creates a very cheerful look. You also maintained good detail in the tree trunks, avoiding having them as silhouettes also contributes to the cheerful look. In terms of composition, I agree with @joaoquintela the tree along the left frame edge just attracts too much attention, and pulls my eye away from the rest of the image. A crop from the left would tighten up the composition and help, in my opinion.
