I was inspired by the sound and arrangement style of this album I found on YouTube called Sailing to the World. -- I may have ruined my presentation by linking to this comparison!

I figured subdued dynamics and generous use of the sustain pedal were important to the sound I wanted. I also tried to add some moments of rhythmic fluidity.

Do you think the ending is okay?

I realize that the last chord may be a little sideways. I personally like it, but I also feel a little bit uncertain about it.

I didn't listen to the youtube video for fear of spoiling your composition!  I really liked how you portray the rain with those dotted rhythms and triplets in the high piano.  Nice sounding piano in the recording!  You create a very relaxing soundscape and your harmonies are never dull.  It's a very improvisatory style and there are certainly repeating motifs that you use.  This piece proves that not every kind of music has to have a melodic phrase structure.  Great job!
