They kind of are. Here's a good link that describes how it works. The telescope can perceive and record ranges of infrared, ultraviolet, etc that we can't see. Then there's a post processing step where they take the data they have and the image they have and create something that is more than a picture of what you could see but a visible representation of what's actually there.
So it is kinda fake. It's not really what it would look like if you could see it. It's a way for us to look at what's really there with our dumb human limitations. Link - ( New Window )
are the sheer amount of galaxies in the background. Of course Hubble won't be able to see so many due to Webb being IR based telescope...but it's still amazing to see so many galaxies, just in this one picture alone, thousands, if not millions and each containing billions of stars...Space is awesome
