Anyone else notice the unusual polygonal shape of the cloud formations in the fourth picture down?

It could be a mask but I think it is more likely to be chromatic abberation. You get it a lot if you highly or over process an image to correct the exposure.

It is also possible that the astronaught could have been rather under exposed compared to the rest of the image and the person editing separated him and amended the levels. - If this is not done carefully enough, the processing would lead to the fringing and the slightly unreal appearence of the whole image.

Most of the shots, I believe have had a considerable amount of work done on them - it is more than evident in most of the shots.
