Er, it is real life - it does look like that.

I mean most photos undergo some form of alteration in their colours or whatever, and what we see in that photo isn't exactly what we'll be seeing with our own eyes.

Even if I'm wrong, the sky colour is too good to be true.

Yup, I watched the sun go set across HKI from the promenade along the avenue of stars and there are certain points where the contrast of natural and artificial light is amazing.
