Something makes me suspicious about this image. Shouldn't everything be in focus at infinity? Maybe the far field has been blurred to emphasize the rocket and smoke trail?

I think you're right Matthew, this looks to be the original http://i.imgur.com/pPIDlFc.jpg

Possibly Space Shuttle Atlantis launched from the Kennedy Space Centre on 9th Sept 2006

Not sure if the image was taken from the ISS or a high altitude plane.

From a ballon probe?

Could never decipher any of reddit's $50 billion user interface, but it was a shuttle launch in 2006 photographed by a chase plane. 8 years later, someone finally applied the tilt shift plugin.
