There are three possibilities. One, someone has seen a really nice photo and added their nice photoshop addition.
Or , somebody was at a location for a good reason and knew they could get a shot of something that they were expecting.
Or, somebody just happened to be out in the middle of nowhere and just happened to spot a ufo.

Yes, any EXIF editor allows you to change or remove anything, including the application name.
I've looked into this before, and I had a hard time finding one of those programs that specifically said that it can manipulate the program name section of the metadata. Maybe I was just stupid with my googling, so does anyone have a link to a source that specifically says that?
(By the way, I'm not trying to fake any photos. I'm just curious about this so I know if I can trust that part of the data.)

i'm pretty sure that nothing in that picture is real. The clouds look very unauthentic and the ufo looks like it was superimposed and then had a motion blur added to it. Even the terrain might be CGI, certainly looks like it to me.

Jesus, what is wrong with people? I came out saying it was a FAKE from the first post. I just wanted to hear other people's opinions. If I said "Look at this CGI image!" people would know it's fake. If I said "It's real!" I'd get banned for trying to hoax. So I said "It's fake!"
You all seriously think it's inexperienced? I'm a graphics Designer, not a CGI artist...
Maybe I should have colour corrected it for him, or change a lot of the settings... maybe even changed the blur on the UFO. You know, throw away a few hours. You've all probably stared at the image longer than it took to create!
So don't go off thinking you know about art because to you it doesn't look real.
It was never his intention to look real. I put it up to see which reactions I got, and don't think it's fair to mock the artist, where you yourselves probs can't do better with 5 hours, let alone 5 minutes.
