Retina Wallpaper Thread for the NEW Macbook Pro's

So

I have to wait a week or more to get my new mbp.

Lets post some sweet wallpapers besides the included apple ones, to make our desktop look sweet.

Remember only 2800x1800 or higher

Porsche's wallpapers are 3000x1560. Close enough, just need to figure out what to add to fill in the remaining 240 pixels.

Could add a strip of white to the top to fill in the menu bar?

Hello folks, where can I found the wallpaper they used during WWDC12, on the new MacBook Pro with Retina ? The one with the Zebras ?

Could be preloaded, the ones they show in demos are usually baked into the OS.

Yeap, I did discover that Steve Bloom is the photographer of the Zebra one. Yet he is charging a fee for it.

From his site :

We are a rights-protected image library and therefore have a minimum fee of
50 UK pounds (approx US$76, or 62 Euros) for any use of our images. The
minimum would apply for use of an image as an individual computer wallpaper
/ screensaver.

Code:

    for I in $(curl -# -A "$U" 'http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper/downloads/date/any/index'$P'.html'|grep wallpaper/previews|cut -d\" -f2); do 
      N=$(echo $I|cut -d/ -f4); 
      T=$(echo $I|cut -d/ -f5|cut -d. -f1); 
      echo "Downloading $I: "
      curl -# -L -O -e 'http://interfacelift.com'$I -A "$U" "http://interfacelift.com/wallpaper/7yz4ma1/"$(printf "%05d" $N)"_"$(echo $T|sed -e 's/_//g')"_2880x1800.jpg"; 
   done; 
done
You would want to run this on one line (i put extra lines to make hte post more readable).. Was about 12gigs and took about 9 hours to download

Oh wow, that's really nice.

I'm not usually into included wallpapers, but that would make a beautiful wallpaper. Thank you.

Did you mean this one?

That isn't the actual file from the OS, by the way. I tried finding the folder that contains desktop pictures provided with ML in the Library, but couldn't seem to locate them.

I just set the picture as my desktop and then did the screenshot shortcut and captured it that way.
