No, this thread is not about the update for Mac OS X. I apologize if this has already been discussed, but I'm dying to know who the photographer was whose photo Apple used.
I realize that it's likely severely post-processed, as that depth-of-field, color, and clarity is shockingly idyllic. Still, if that photo turns out to be legitimate, I'd love to see more work from the photographer. Anyone know anything? Is it just fake?
