The Week in Unbelievably Gorgeous ScreenshotsS

Since running a big, enjoyable feature on Duncan Harris, the "video game photographer" behind the website DeadEndThrills, I've been sharing some of his work each week here.

This week has some great stuff. Here we go!

First up, at top, we've got one of several shots from Star Trek Online, this one titled:

"Harbour Lights."

Woah. Gorgeous shot of a Federation station (correct? I'm not a huge Trek knowledge-haver), the kind of shot you'd expect to see in a Star Trek movie, not a Star Trek MMO. Here, as usual, are Harris' "Tools and Tricks":

Tools and tricks: Cryptic demo recorder, 2160p rendering, free camera, custom FOV, timestop, offline antialiasing.

"The Killing Fields"

The first of a series from the online PC hunting game Hunter. I gotta admit, Far Cry 2 junkie that I am, that these shots make me want to play this game a whole lot.

Tools and tricks: 2160p rendering, antialiasing (FXAA injection w/ texture presharpening).

"Hinterland"

See what I mean? Doesn't this just make you want to climb up that hill and see what's on the other side? It does me. As Harris puts it, "I could post scenes from The Hunter until the cows come home – but then I'd have to shoot the cows and have them stuffed." He's even put a bunch more of his Hunter shots on Flickr. So there.
