This contest has ended


Welcome to the twenty-third edition of the Screenshot of the Week!

To start with, congratulations to the winner of the previous contest! Rory O'Kane's submission of San Francisco bay in took the first spot with 14 upvotes!

Last week's winning screenshot

To submit a screenshot, simply post it as an answer to this question, but please take note of the following:

  • One screenshot per post, and one post per person, please!
  • Limited picture modifications are allowed, such as cropping, simple filters, and blurring of identifying info such as names, but not adding other images or text.
  • To ensure a fair playing field, please post screenshots you've taken yourself rather than ones you found online.
  • Stack Exchange’s Code of Conduct still applies - so if it would be unacceptable to post normally, it’s unacceptable here.

Also, try to avoid pictures that include spoilers. We want everyone to be able to enjoy this contest, so the less spoilers the better.

How long will the contest run?

We will accept submissions for a week, until 19:00 UTC of 2020-10-12, 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 2020-10-19, we will count upvotes only to determine the winning screenshot, which will be featured for a week on the main site's shiny new photo widget.


Theme

The theme for this week's contest is Water Scenes, so get ready to make a splash and take screenshots involving lots of water in some way.

As a reminder, we're always accepting suggestions for themed weeks, and have compiled that suggestion process into a question of its own.

    The next contest's theme is not announced yet, can I suggest Halloween for obvious reasons? it was also suggested in themes question - gaming.meta.stackexchange.com/a/15059/144891 – arghtype Oct 9 at 1:23
  • My #19 picture is currently featured. Is that intended? – Fabian Röling Oct 13 at 9:43

    That's intended. We're using the voting period of new contests to feature the winners of contests from before we had the photo widget. – Wrigglenite Oct 13 at 18:36
  • @FabianRöling - Yep, what Wrigglenite said. I started a post on the Hall of Fame to track which screenshots have been featured thus far: gaming.meta.stackexchange.com/a/15367/28182. – Robotnik Oct 15 at 22:46

    Man, I still need to pick up that game – SaintWacko Oct 7 at 14:32
  • @SaintWacko I need to try sub-zero still. Downloaded it a while ago when it first came out, but it kept crashing. Wonder if its better now – Timmy Jim Oct 8 at 15:13
  • @TimmyJim Last i saw, and played, subzero was in beta, and it was super broken. I'm guessing the game kind of half died, I couldn't continue the campaign because of a bug, and I left the game for months. Furthermore, they don't update the original anymore, so sadly it might be the end for those two games. – Mister SirCode Oct 10 at 7:49
  • @MisterSirCode They're still working on it, but yes, it's in a buggy and unfinished state right now, which incidentally, was also how the original was made. – Corsaka Oct 12 at 11:06

I just finished the wonderful : a game that shouldn't be left out of this week's theme.

    Fantastic game, and I use the 'meditation' mode as a sort of virtual fishtank visual on screen whenever I host guests at home. – GnomeSlice Oct 12 at 16:26

An early afternoon radstorm surrounding the coast of Far Harbor -

A green sky spans across the fog-covered sea. Lone ruins of a house can be traced out on a near, but barely visible island. A single blue light overlooks the dark coastline.

Halloween is soon – maybe it's time to get lost in the gloomy, grim world of Fallout again :)

    I was torn between this scene where that little water means everything to the fish; or the late-game underwater stage which was visually more impressive. Enslaved: Odyssey to the West is an interestingly flavored adaptation of Journey to the West. Andy Serkis does a great job as the voice of Monkey. – Booga Roo Oct 12 at 18:36

    This is an excellent and underrated game. Memorable scene, and a good choice – GnomeSlice Oct 12 at 19:28

The great storm on Giants Deep is so mighty it can be captured from beneath the waves.

  • Oh frig I literally did not even notice. Busy week with the holiday and all for me this time around.. – GnomeSlice Oct 12 at 19:16

Here you see a huge iceberg biome that fills up more than the entire server render distance. Just one thing is missing, hmmm… Oh right, it's the icebergs! I wonder where they went… Oh right, into my inventory! All of them!

The ice visible in this screenshot all generated over time around the path. Originally there was none there either.
I did actually build an AFK ice farm on this server, but it turns out that mining icebergs is much faster, because you don't need to wait for water to freeze and it's already at least packed ice, some of it even blue ice. So I mined a lot of ice for Nether tunnels. Eventually everything within render distance of that path (which is longer than what's visible here) was gone. If the server render distance was bigger, I would have mined out more, but for now 5 double chests of blue ice should be enough…

    "should" "enough" – Corsaka Oct 7 at 8:15
  • Well, I did recently use up about 20 double chests full of stone bricks for Nether tunnels. And about one double chest of blue ice. – Fabian Röling Oct 7 at 12:18
