I didn't mean an actual picture frame. I meant the photographic concept of framing. The focus of the image should be the 768x768 section in the middle, with the remaining edges more superfluous. Nothing you want as the focus should be cropped out of that middle section. I think the real photographers around here might be able to explain it better, though.What if you don't want a picture frame on your background?
It is ok in my opinion. I'm not really thrilled with it, but I don't hate it either.Am I the only one who doesn't like the iPad wallpaper shown on the Apple site and promo images. I know it was commissioned by Apple and cost them some $$ supposedly, but I think it is somewhat lame..
I personally think they could have done better.
I don't believe it is a meteor shower. It looks more like a long exposure taken at dusk with, perhaps, a neutral density filter. The streaks are curved, therefore the light from the stars recorded as the earth rotates.I can't speak for anyone else, but I think it looks awesome: a striking balance between the immensity of the landscape and open space, it feels clean, fresh and, thanks to the meteor shower, dare I say it ... slightly magical.
+1It just reminds me how much wasted space is on the iPad homescreen.
