I was experimenting with seventh chords etc. and came up with this. There are a few sections I want to change a bit but wanted to see what everyone thought.

Interesting phrase structure works nicely, and the harmonies sound completely natural.

I like most of it. There is some repetition that seems to grow old fast. As Krysler noted, the structure is good and the harmonies work well. I don't see a lot of development (not uncommon in waltzes), and it never seems to progress beyond a basic theme.

I found that the more I compose the less people seem to like them. When I started off I was doing new-age perhaps I should go back. :p

Thanks for your comments, I'll try to weed out my repetition.
