Impossible Milky Way over Seattle
In the debate over how much augmentation makes a picture "fake," my basic rule is, I don't use Photoshop or other tools to create something that doesn't appear in nature - unless that's the point of the image, in which case, I'd be very clear that it's a fantasy.
So, No - you can't see the Milky Way over Seattle like this, but only because the lights of the city obscure it. If everyone in Seattle agreed to turn out their lights on a Summer evening, this is the sky we would see.
For this image, I stole the sky from a spot near Mount St. Helens, and placed it over the Seattle, shot from Gasworks park.
