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

To start with, congratulations to the winner of the previous contest! PausePause's submission of a scenic aurura took the first spot with 12 upvotes! Here it is in all its beauty:

To submit a screenshot, simply post it as an answer to this question. One screenshot per post, and one post per person, please! Please note that limited modifications to submitted screenshots are allowed, like simple filters, but not adding other images or text. We will accept submissions for a week, until 19:00 UTC of 2020-01-17, 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 2020-01-24, we will count upvotes only to determine the winning screenshot, which will be featured as the winner in the next Screenshot post.

We're looking for suggestions for a theme to use in the next contest, so if you have any cool ideas, please post them in a comment on this question. For this week, there will be no specific theme, so any screenshot is allowed! When suggesting a theme, try to avoid something unique to a single game or series, and go for more general ideas like "funny", "horror", or "recursion".

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.

  • Would Ansel filters(or other video card based filters) be acceptable? No opinion here. I'm not familiar with them.

  • @BoogaRoo I personally don't see a problem with them. As the last few contests have shown, it's not just the 'pretty' pictures that get upvoted. Besides, some users will already have an edge with their better hardware, and we can't really set a baseline for that.

  • @Joachim Good point. I doubt I would even recognize if the filters were in use unless I knew the game already anyway. Plus, I imagine some people will play with the filters they like turned on and may not have a way to retake a screenshot without them. I see no harm in allowing the filters. It's not like there's prize money at stake.

When playing around with mods in goes south, you get the most scenic vistas.

I used to be a Jedi like you, but then I took a saber to the knee ... and foot ... and shoulder.
