That is, indeed, a superb picture! After driving my eyes batty looking at it, I'm going to have to vote for the 762. Yes, it's focus is a little better (of course, the focus could've intentionally been on it, and that would make the 733 slightly out of focus whether it's further away or not).
At the same time, the tower might want to put the 733 ahead of the 762, for purposes of avoiding the most wake turbulence.

Take a close look at where the 737's tail is close to the 767's nose. To me, the difference in detail/color/contrast between the two is additional proof (IMHO) that the 737 is further from the camera (landing 28R) and the 767 is closer to the camera (landing 28L).

I have to say that the 767 is closer. If you think about how it was posted, he points out the 737, but the 767 is in focus. That would say to me that the camera auto-focused on the closer object, even if that wasn't the original intention. But why doesn't someone ask the photographer? I know, I think I'll do that. I'm waiting for his response right now.

The windows, emergency exits all appear slightly larger on the 737, it's the closer one. Also, you can nearly read the registration of the 737, and the flag is in better focus and slightly bigger than those of the 767.

From the photographer via email:
Thank you for your interst in the photo. I had no idea that it would come to this, but I truly do appreciate the interest. The answer to the question is the 737. Just by looking at the photo, the best evidence I could come up with would be the relative size of the main passenger doors or even the relative size of a 767 vs a 737. And just to clear up any controversy, I do actually have a photo showing the 737 in front.
