My congratulations for turning a simple chord progression (I, iii, IV, V) into 8 bars, however I still think you repeat it a little too much. Maybe in like the bigger portion, you can add a secondary dominant to surprise the audience. Simple one chord changes can make the difference.

I also felt like this was a study or a sketch in either melody or variations on a chord progression. Your sections weren't exactly fleshed out very much. If this is ALREADY accompanying some sort of film, then forget what I have to say about that, but as just a listening piece, it's kind of aggravating to want to hear more build come out of something and not receive.

The ending was a little awkward and cliché. I like the D half-diminished, but the bass on the tonic (1, 5, 8, 9, 10) is a little bit boring.

It does sound really nice though, in terms of each section. I just wish there was more to latch onto.
