For those interested, here is how I took the photo:
First, yes it was actually taken at 3am, actually at 3:20am. The camera settings were ISO 400, 16mm @ f/6.7. It is three exposures 6 seconds, 20 seconds, 30 seconds, blended in Photomatix Pro to bring out the range of color.
Saturday was a full moon (or close to it) so with the long exposures and clouds in the sky, it light up very bright. The only photoshopping was to increase the blacks so the details come out more. I wish I knew how to photoshop a sky, a little darker would be better.
