Hard to tell. Seems to me that in order to get the night sky that vivid you would need to have a long exposure, which in turn seems like it would’ve made the fire (I assume that is fire? Or is it lights from a house/town?) a lot brighter. But then again the surrounding terrain looks more daylight-ish than you would find at that time of night. Whats the source on it?
I think it is real, although I’m quite sure that it’s edited.
How about this…
Apart from the somewhat convincing trees added in the left, a cave/hunter man? A spaceship? If it looks the least bit suspicious, it almost always is a montage.
How did you get that? I found the original on my HDD , searched tineye for it but didn’t go too deep with it. Well it is long exposure, but to get the sky like that without circle trails of stars one would have to use a rotating tripod. The stars would stand still like this but the earth would leave a circle trail. I believe that is a town and the whole thing is at night as basically there are no shadows I can see. A long exposure shot at night would exactly look like this, but the stars or the town shuld have been moved while it was taken.. So I think it’s edited from 2 images to look like one.
I copied the photo you posted and quickly added the fictional elements. Now back to the original, to me, it looks clearly edited. Of course, I can be wrong, but this scene, I’d only believe it if I was there, live, seeing it with my own eyes.
I can say i’m 99% sure that is fake! look the perspective of the picture is absolutely wrong because to take that kind of widepicture you need a wide lense and this picture is not taken by one for sure. Second of all Theres no way to see the nebula sky like that without a telescope except if the picture is taken in another planet!
Of course theres this 1% that might be real
I’m pretty sure it’s real, I saw an article in abduzeedo about this a long time ago. it’s made with a special camera (because with your camera you wouldn’t make a picture to the stars) and you have to wait more than one minute to make it. I can’t find this article now.. :/
uhm. I would say: FAKE .
- have you ever seen that many stars?
- have you ever seen a cosmic cloud with the naked eye?
- have you ever seen the stars so close to the horizon?
maybe it’s because I live in boring Holland, but I most certainly have not seen any of the above. ever.
