Note- I mistakenly claimed this was taken from the ISS, but did some further investigation, and it was not. The photo was taken from a plane during NASA Mission STS-115:
In fact, the photographs were almost certainly taken from a WB-57 chase jet. These high altitude jets are able to keep pace with the shuttle high into the earth's atmosphere and capture detailed images of the shuttle as it climbs towards orbit. The planes can climb to over 60,000 feet.http://www.hoax-slayer.com/shuttle-launch-iss.shtml
The added visual effect to the original photo appears to be something like #TiltShift Photography.
