      Actually, Photoshop is a big part of that answer. That particular one is a composite, which isn’t really in the spirit of the post. The star trails are from somewhere – who knows – but you cannot simultaneously expose for that amount of time and also freeze the clouds. Clouds are moving way faster than the stars and just look like haze with a long exposure, not to mention obscuring the stars. In addition, you’ll notice the stars on the left are spinning on a different orbit than those on the right near the north pole. Nice and surreal, but definitely not real. IMHO, night photography is wild enough without the tinkering, but it is a nice image all the same.

    Nice photographs, but 2/3 of the pictures you choose all were from 1x.com in the “night” category. Why not just make a blog post about 1x being THE place to go online if you want to see some amazing photography?
