That section of the sky simply has more bright stars than the other.

I'm sure Drakkith is correct--also the actual trails seem a bit overexposed, and that exacerbates the effect. I would guess that the photographer possibly 'stacked' multiple images and the alignment might have been off a bit, because the single exposure shots I've seen tend to be sharper. Anyway, see the shot on the homepage here--

It resembles the one you referenced, as far as the imbalance you noted...
