A Very High Quality HD Show piece

"Got the HD-DVD version yesterday and scanned through it fairly quickly I will give it a serious sit down this weekend.
For right now here are QUICK impressions for those on the fence.
So far the PQ is VERY good no noticeable artifacts, or compression issues, SQ is very good as well the background music is nice and pretty interesting for this type of release, instrumental new age type of music but not as boring as you would think.
The PQ is on par with the better parts of Planet Earth to give it some perspective. The interesting part of this disc is the CG effects that are SEAMLESSLY integrated with the nature shots. This not only adds a nice touch to the scenery it is VERY TRIPPY, Pink Floyd fans like myself should really enjoy this disc, The disc also has different seasonal loop modes, I have not tried those yet.
I'm quite fond of HD nature discs, I hate to admit that I now have every HD nature disc that has been released in HD, this includes the living landscape 9 disc series on HD-DVD, Planet Earth on BLU-RAY, All of the IMAX releases, Chronos, Nature's Colors, all of the HD-Scape releases. I currently own them all on either HD-DVD or BLU-RAY.
I can honestly say this disc provides the best PQ, SQ and most professional packaging out of all of them. With any of the Nature discs taken from Prosumer HD\DV camera's I've noticed compression issues, color bleeding, artifact movement in the background. I have NOT seen that on this release. I will closer examine it this weekend though and report back if any thing like that pops up.
From the liner notes you can obviously tell they spent a lot of time and effort on this project.
So in short this disc is a winner, if you like any type of Nature HD material, or are a Pink Floyd/Psychedelic fan or you want some good demo material for your HD setup this disc would be well worth it."

"Both sound and video are great examples of what can be acheived by blu-ray high definition.
For my family, this film is one we'll watch over and over again to appreciate the magnificence of nature captured by masters of the photographic art.
Highly recommended and a must for your blu-ray collection."
For focus and inspiration

"The best creative works inspire more creative works - and that's just what this does. I found the images and music to create a great atmosphere to which I can write, read, and either focus on a task or be inspired to create something new.
Definitely worth checking out. And I hope they make another one!"
Planet Earth meets Fantasia meets Pink Floyd

"I could only stand this DVD for about 15 minutes. My wife finally said, "Please put on something else, it's giving me a headache!" I tried it out from Netflix before deciding to buy. I didn't care for the "music," nor did I care for the tidbits of animation layered over the nature scenes. I did like the nature scenes on their own; I just wish they had left them alone. Granted, this sort of thing is subjective, and while I can see why some people might really enjoy it (thus two stars instead of one), it is certainly not for me, nor for my wife, for that matter, so two votes against."
