At first I wasn't sure what to expect, because the beginning piano is without reverb and is too dry, that really kills it at first, needs to be better mixed too, more brightness, less in the mids in the mix. The background strings though are great, and at 49 seconds in, this really becomes something beautiful, and something well mixed, which is why i find it odd the piano is mixed so way off and doesn't blend with the rest of it, it really kills it.

Also the piano is a bit too loud over the rest. This is a beautiful piece, everything else is perfect and mixed great, but the piano is a drawback due to the way it's mixed and without reverb and maybe some delay depending on you preference.

If it wasn't for the piano issues, i wouldve given this a near perfect score. Also the flute at 2:34, too dry, needs to fill up the space with some reverb like everything else. Other than that, beautiful song, just need to learn more about blending the piano with the rest, and it's also a bit flat but you can fix that in settings, to make it in tune with the rest of the instruments.

Thanks for the input! I'll try to fix those things and keep them in mind for future compositions.
