This complicated setup has NOT been retouched. Technology often involves processes that are not inherently pictorial or even the least bit interesting, visually. The professor is indeed tossing apples into the air in the dark while Phil is up on a ladder, "guessing" at when the exposure should be made. Strangely enough, there were MANY frames with apples magically frozen in just the right place! One of Phil's favorite images, this picture was made prior to the "arrival" of digital photography. It was initially used on the cover of a scientific magazine.
