The prettiest screenshots of 2016

Between our weekly Pixel Boost column (opens in new tab) and whatever resolution tinkering we do on our own time, we take a lot of pretty, ultra-high-res screenshots every year. A couple years ago, we started a tradition of putting together a gallery of our favorites at the end of the year—so whether by us or talented Pixel Boost contributors Mary K and James Snook, these are the prettiest screenshots we published in 2016.  

If you're keen for more virtual photography, the best place to start is Dead End Thrills (opens in new tab)—a site that could accurately be called 'the prettiest screenshots ever, pretty much all of them.' Also check out our screenshot galleries from 2015 (opens in new tab)and 2014 (opens in new tab).
