The prettiest screenshots of 2017

Screenshot (cropped) by Andy Cull. See the full image below and more on his Flickr page.

Every year we round up our favorite screenshots, with preference to those taken at ultra-high resolutions with custom camera controls for beautiful HUD-free compositions. Previously, we've mainly included shots of our own, but this year I asked the community to submit their own. Special thanks to Larah Johnson (opens in new tab) (aka HodgeDogs (opens in new tab)) and Andy Cull (opens in new tab) who've lent us their collections for the year, as well as Cinematic Captures (opens in new tab) and The Gamers Zone (opens in new tab) for their great Battlefront 2 shots.

For the sake of space, we haven't included every screenshot submitted, but do check out these comments (opens in new tab) for more, and leave your best in the comments here.
