Must admit, I feel kind of the same. It's also probably more of an artistic rendering than a photograph in the classical sense.

Humans can only see a tiny sliver of the enormous Electromagnetic spectrum. Just because it's not a photograph in visible light doesn't mean it's not our best rendering of EM data and what that would look like to us if it was in the visible spectrum.

We do the same thing with digital cameras, X-rays, MRI, etc.
