Sunsets from around the galaxy

Picture taken from Planetary habitability Laboratory from University Of Puerto Rico at Arecibo's homepage:
"This figure shows an actual image of a sunset on Earth compared to artistic representations for the best candidates of potential habitable worlds so far. The image corrects for the size, colors, and brightness of the star and sky as seen from an Earth-like world located in the orbits of these worlds. The size of and colors of the star of Kepler-22 b look similar to Earth because it orbits a Sun-like star."

Why is the cloud cover on all of them close if not exactly the same?
User avatar #4 to #3 - blaxfire (12/25/2012) [-]
Because its a representation of what the sunset would look like if earth was near those stars rather then our own, and its the same picture because they are comparing the sunsets and when you are comparing things you want them to be as similar as possible.

TL:DR artists are lazy *****
