Isn't this the sort of thing which usually makes you wince? Because I'm thinking effective gene pool cleansing at work.

Wow! That's got to be an artist's rendering, right? It's just too perfect.

You know what, now I'm not so sure. It's from the Solar Dynamics Observatory, and their gallery is full of similarly spectacular images. I didn't look too hard, but they don't seem to list them as renderings. Indeed they've got a "sun as art" section.

It's technically art but otherwise seems to be photos combined and spruced up a little. They seem to make out that it's not much different than a false colour image.

From the SDO's "Sun as Art" section:
Most images were taken in extreme ultraviolet wavelength of light. Many images are presented with no manipulation at all; in some, only color tables are altered; in the more inventive ones, pieces were cut and moved around.

I'm afraid it doesn't warrant getting you on the "Do Not Troll" list.
