Welcome to the second edition of the Screenshot of the Week!

To start with, congratulations to the winner of the previous contest! Robotnik's submission of an intimidating wild duck took the first spot with 16 upvotes! Here it is in all its beauty:

Wild Farfetch'd using Leer

To submit a screenshot, simply post it as an answer to this question. One screenshot per post, and one post per person, please! We will accept submissions for a week, until 19:00 UTC of 2019-12-19, then have a second week-long period where only voting will be accepted. This is to give every submission, even those posted at the end of the first week, a chance to be voted on by everyone. After the end of the second week, at 19:00 UTC of 2019-12-26, we will count upvotes only to determine the winning screenshot, which will be featured as the winner in the next Screenshot post.

As with the first week, this contest won’t have a dedicated theme; feel free to post any screenshot that you think is cool, funny, lucky, or just worth sharing!

Just remember, Stack Exchange’s Code of Conduct still applies - so if it would be unacceptable to post normally, it’s unacceptable here. As an additional rule, please avoid pictures that include spoilers. We want everyone to be able to enjoy this contest, so the less spoilers the better.

As a final note, we are still looking for any theme ideas, suggestions about the format, rules, concerns or anything else you might think of, in order to improve the following weeks’ editions. If you think you have some nice idea, post a comment on this question.

    I've been taking fancy screenshots for years, but I have no one to share them with. The time has come! – arghtype Dec 12 '19 at 20:01

    Theme could be a "War Photographers Journal", where people post in-game photos of war games with a journalistic bent/narrative. – Lore Friendly Dec 13 '19 at 4:43

    I would like to see themes that cover broad ideas. Stuff like: Humorous, Dramatic, Landscapes, Creativity, Wildlife, Horror, Glitches/Bugs, etc... That way someone can contribute without needing to have any particular game on hand. – Booga Roo Dec 13 '19 at 7:22

    Robotnik's latest submission leads me to a question regarding image manipulation. Obviously that screenshot could benefit from some adjustments. How much manipulation would be acceptable for the contest? I think cropping, brightness/contrast, and privacy focused edits(removing player names) would be fine by me. – Booga Roo Dec 14 '19 at 13:28

    @BoogaRoo - All the standard adjustments you list (cropping, blurring of PII, brightness/contrast edits) should be ok. When an edit starts to add something more to a screenshot is where we should draw the line: filters, superimposing other images, adding text etc, should be disallowed. This competition is just supposed to be a little bit of fun, not a photoshop skills test or meme compilation :) – Robotnik Dec 16 '19 at 23:57
  • What about Ansel filters? – Smock Dec 20 '19 at 9:33
  • @Smock Are you referring to vignette effects that darken the screen around the edge? Or are you asking about filters built into video card drivers from Nvidia that are applied as you play the game? – Booga Roo Dec 26 '19 at 17:08
  • @BoogaRoo I meant the effects you can apply in game using the Ansel integration (using the nvidia engine to take photos in game) – Smock Jan 6 at 11:12

    @BoogaRoo What do you mean you have no idea what's going on? It's obvious it's a humanoid cauliflower-headed monster just out for a stroll in his skull garden :P – Wondercricket Dec 13 '19 at 16:30

    The lighting was terrible but still a funny moment... – Robotnik Dec 14 '19 at 13:19
  • Fallout 4 has so many references it's insane. Haven't seen this one, could you give me a hint where it is? :-) – RudolfJelin Dec 15 '19 at 17:58
  • @Rudolf - I think it was a random spawn not an explicit reference, but it was at that flooded quarry after you fix the pump – Robotnik Dec 15 '19 at 21:45
  • Ooh, thanks. Time for another visit then. – RudolfJelin Dec 17 '19 at 16:54

I often joke that I'm like Chitose from Yuru Yuri

[Chitose] has a gentle disposition, and often (especially when she takes her glasses off) has various warm and fuzzy Yuri fantasies, almost always pairing Kyōko together with Ayano, which often leads to near-fatal nosebleeds.

So while playing

It's taste reminds me of yuri

what do you suppose will happen next

Uhm, something looks Fishy here....
