Review

You'll be hard-pressed to find a single shot in 'The Most Beautiful Places in the World' that doesn't tickle the eye. I was particularly impressed with the cleanliness of the source -- it's crystal clear, with excellent blacks and very natural contrast. Colors are vibrant, yet very clean -- and they're refreshingly free from oversaturation. Detail is often exquisite, and the sense of depth is often akin to looking out of a freshly-scrubbed window. --Reviewed by Peter M. Bracke_Tuesday, June 12, 2007

Just got a copy of World's Most Beautiful Places, and it is exactly what the title projects it to be. Absolutely gorgeously filmed, Hi-Def locations and landscapes from all around this beautiful planet, expertly framed and edited, compiled here from their other full length disc sets. I played it, expecting to use it as pretty, moving backgrounds, but was captivated to sit and watch the whole thing in one setting. The music is appropriately soft and elegant, along side the background sounds of streams, wind, ocean waves. This disc is easily on par with my other nature disc, Planet Earth, but without all that talking. It will make a specatular "screen saver" in my front room, ever reminding me of the magnificent contrasts of nature's natural beauty. I will be buying the rest of HD Environments BluRay discs very soon, and look forward to their future releases as well. It's a wonderful production that met AND exceeded my expectations, so that is five stars in my book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great video, not so great audio September 21, 2007
Format:DVD
Good news: This is one of the few good landscape DVDs that don't require you to have a HD or BluRay player. The landscapes truly are beautiful and are REAL, unlike some of the DVDs I've purchased in the past that only had animated nature scenes, even though they proudly proclaimed on the packaging "Shot in HD!" (I'm looking at you, 'Living Art' DVDs!).

Bad news: You can't turn off the music on this collection and just listen to the natural sounds. You can hear them (barely) in the background, but the music track drowns it out. Just be aware of that if you wanted to hear the sounds of the ocean, or the birds of the forest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty and Relaxing July 31, 2007
Format:HD DVD|Verified Purchase
Very very pretty and relaxing. Good to just chill out and relax or as a background to the party or a dinner. Just like looking out the window and with some soft classical type music playing in background.
This one has a bit of everything, and they are all good. There is also full hour version for each envinroment if you find one that you like in particular.
I dunno what the other reviewer is smoking, but i found the quality to be excellent both video and sound wise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyment Ruined By Piano Soundtrack January 1, 2008
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The DVD sleeve describes this collection as "designed to create sensory-immersive experiences of the worlds most beautiful environments" For me the enjoyment was ruined by the piano sountrack which drowns out the natural outdoor sounds. It's like watching Sunrise Earth with an annoying new age piano soundtrack. There is no way to kill the piano sountrack other than muting all of the sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! what a great use for HD! July 1, 2007
Format:Blu-ray
This program makes me glad I turned my livingroom into an HD home theatre. We can't believe how fantastic it is to be transported to what truly seem to be some of the world's most beautiful places in the comfort of our own home. The colors, the clarity and most of all the amazing places I've never seen make this a breathtaking experience. The natural surround-sound is over the top.... I seriously thought there were songbirds in my house when the Costa Rica and Hawaii chapters were playing. I'm tempted to get some of the other programs in this collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars The World's Most Beautiful Places HD DVD December 27, 2007
Format:HD DVD
Photography 5 star, music terrible, includes a child plinkining away on a piano at a pitch that actually starts to irritate after a few minutes, also these people think so highly of themselves that they ruin the images by keeping their logo on most of the time. Not even NG. has ever done that. Overtall rating 0 stars, I've thrown my copy in the garbage where I personally think it belongs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A glorious visual and audio experience August 6, 2007
Format:HD DVD
Filmed in 1080i high definition with 5.1 surround sound, and available in both DVD and HD-DVD format, Living Landscapes The World's Most Beautiful Places earns its title with a glorious visual and audio experience. The cinematography does not disrupt the soothing images and sounds of nature with verbal narration; birds, ocean waves, and calm background music accompanies the breathtakingly beautiful display. A loop feature allows one to play the DVD for pleasant background effect as if hanging an ever-changing picture. Enthusiastically recommended for armchair travelers, and anyone who wants to play a DVD solely to relax and enjoy the wonders of natural creation. 75 minutes, color.
