wow!! simply gorgeous :) you're lucky to have such a view of the milky way, too much light pollution here, even with light pollution filters :(

is it really possible to capture a picture of a milky way or is this a photo manipulation?

yes, this can be done by using a tripod, setting your camera to long exposure and higher iso. you should also try to shoot from a "light pollution" free area for better results. :)

ok...im new to long exposure shots, i got two questions

1) isnt higher ISO makes the photo look grainy?
2) how did you focus the sky when you took this in a light pollution free area?

i've always wanted to shot a picture like that :) it's so beautiful

Yup higher ISO makes the photo more grainy but it also depends on the camera you're using. Some latest cameras have more tolerance against high ISO grain, but you can minimize that using the Camera Raw on Photoshop or Adobe Lightroom. About the focusing, set your lens to manual and focus to the brightest star you can see using the live view function of your dslr. I hope this helps you. :)

Yup, mine was only 15sec. exposure but you can try 20sec. the longer the exposure the more you will notice the star trails. so just stick to 15-20sec. unless you want to shoot the star trails. :)
