Ha, I didn't see it as being that complex.
Its simply a day sky with a night landscape mixed together and the "disturbing" part is that they are combined very naturally in a way that many people would totally miss the unnatural phenomenon.
The existence of day and night together would be something that wouldn't register in most people's minds.
So, I can't see it as "HDR" or very well developed shadow detail.
Photographically is a montage of two separate frames.
