Looking for some criticism on a soundtrack (beginnner)

Hey guys!

I'm not entirely sure if this is the right subforum to post this, to be honest.

I've recently finished an orchestral track that I think indicates my current level of ability pretty well and I would very much appreciate it if some of you would take the time to listen to it and provide a bit of feedback!
I'll gladly take any kind of criticism, so please don't hold back!


Thanks for your time!

This is promising. Well done. Maybe strategically bringing some parts into closer focus (less reverb) would help.

Thank you so much! I have never actually thought about utilizing reverb that way - I'll try and mess around a bit and see if I can learn to implement it!

If you want a more symphonic sound, then the reverb works fine, although definitely its on the big hall / distant side of the scale currently. It's personal taste though.

There were some moments where I thought there could be more movement. So at 1:00, bring in some very soft trem high strings. And from 1:50 have strings play either a backing rythm or woods play some arpeggios, to fill in the canvas a bit.

I actually struggled with this exact issue quite a bit, as I also felt a lack of movement yet was unable to figure out how to go about adding more of it, so this is very useful advice for me. Thank you!
