I'd be interested to know how the colours were achieved - were they naturally there or are they artificially introduced?

The colours are naturally there however, the longer exposure of the camera as compared to the human eye enhances their prescence.

Thin cloud also helps to spread out star colour in an image therefore making it more obvious to the eye.

Finally, a bit of increased colour saturation in the post-processing brings the existing colour up a bit more.

Cheers

Paul
