Back on topic - I think that it can work in reverse.

Show a nice seaside scene to someone from around here, and you may get a lukewarm reception. Show it to someone who lives in a desert environment, and the greater novelty may bring rise to a better response.

This is one of the challenges of the internet world - there is a danger that every scene may become "commonplace".
If the word Eskimo isn't politically correct these days they are going to have to re write the poem, because Inuit Nell just doesn't have the same ring to it
