That staccatto violin/viola in addition to the flute gives me some sort of Runescapey nostralgia.
I think the tubas deserve a little EQ tweaking, and those sustained violins require some refinement, in my opinion. It sounds like they're stealing space from all the other instruments. I think the best way to fix that would be to give the violins a bunch of attack so that they "rev up" instead of starting immediately. Sounds kind of unnatural.
If that doesn't suit you, you could always check out other violin VSTs. (What software did you use for this song, by the way?)
Maybe I'm just being picky. Those are my thoughts anyways.
Apart from that, you did a WONDERFUL job with the ambience. I get the chills when those pads cut in at the beginning.
Also; I'm not sure, but I think we may have used the exact rain-and-thunder sample from Freesound. It may not be as audible in my song, but you might notice it (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/574205).
Good job, sire. Hope to hear more great stuff like this in the future. Keep it up.
Faved and followed!
