Hello and welcome to the 57th edition of the Screenshot of the Week!

To start with, congratulations to the winner of the previous contest! arghtype's picture of Helios from won with 12 upvotes!

Last week's winning screenshot one

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 2022-01-31, 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 2022-02-07, we will count upvotes only to determine the winning screenshot, which will be featured for a week on the main site's photo widget.

No Theme

No theme this week, post your best (or worst) screenshots!

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

    Is this like "Mastermind", but with words? The colours and the layout remind me of it, but then the first guesses would be unusual. Commented Jan 25, 2022 at 21:38
  • @FabianRöling basically, although absurdle is an adversarial variant, so early guesses do end up looking strange

  • Shouldn't you guess as many distinct letters as possible then? Commented Jan 26, 2022 at 8:40

    @FabianRöling That's working under the assumption that I'm good at this. Also, your guesses have to be valid words themselves.

  • Ah, that explains why you don't just start with "ABCDE". Commented Jan 26, 2022 at 19:40

The most aesthetically pleasing lighting for the most disgusting shower in

  • Is this with any kind of mods or anything? It looks graphically better than I remember, though it has been a bit since I played.

    @TimmyJim It's bone stock vanilla! I run games at 60fps though, so I can usually up the graphical quality a lot without sacrificing frames. Commented Jan 25, 2022 at 13:56
  • What is this, a shower for ants?

One of my endless screenshots from , because the game is so darn beautiful:

Forza Horizon 5

Screenshot taken from in-browser with the game running via cloud streaming, so it's compressed, yet looks pretty good.

While the photo above is taken using the game's in-game Photo mode, the real-time graphics are near identical!

    Could you get rid of the advertisement? It sounds like Microsoft hired you to post this.

    @BoogaRoo: it's really hard to talk about Xbox Game Pass without coming off as a shill -- the service is just that good :/ I've edited some of the text to better highlight my point (cloud streaming => compressed visuals).

Just me, casually swimming on land, in UE4.

me, swimming on land

It's hard to see, since it isn't animated.

List of bugs happening at the same time:

  • I'm in a state which says that I'm always walking;
  • I tried to do an attack underwater (previous state lets you do that) and was placed on top of the water;
  • The floor geometry failed to let the camera go above, where it should be;
  • The light failed to transition between areas on this spot;
  • I'm swimming somewhere that has no water underneath.

This is the type of broken stuff that UE4 brought to us :(
