I haven't written something in quite some time. It's simple (I wrote this in about an hour) but I think it's quite beautiful to listen to.
The melody itself is piecful and flowing. There is potential in it.
However you are using your samples simply as voices of your keyboard - right hand flute, left hand some clustered strings, not very specific which strings, as long as they are strings ...
To call this "orchestral" would a little over the top. How about taking some more care with the individual voices?
I'm not entirely sure what you mean with "more care with the voices." Do you mean that the notation is not realistic for the instruments chosen?
I think what Hannes means is that you need to create a place and purpose for each instrument as it would be used in an orchestra or ensemble.

Welcome to the forum, dlmusic55!
Very promising work -- good, solid melodic writing.
An hour, though, even for the most skilled of us,
would not do justice to this material.
You know what that means: Get back to work... lol!
Seriously, looking forward to more, DL.
