Cinemagraphs are a subset of .gif files that are high quality, smoothly looped, and just downright gorgeous. 

A ton of outstandingly creative people have worked hard to create these pictures, and you can really tell based on how wonderful they look in motion.

Reddit's /r/Cinemagraphs subreddit has one of the definitive collections of the images online, an active community of original content creators that design these intricate pictures.

We wanted to put a spotlight on some of these amazing works of art, so here's a look at some of the best original content from the sub.

Once you've seen these, regular GIFs will just seem boring.
