New Reject. Could I have your help?

Hello everyone. Nice to meet you and hope my case would bring some more insight to everyone!

here is my rejected music

this is “aj loop” added version

the comment is quite complete…
This submission does not meet AudioJungle’s commercial production (recording/mixing/mastering) standard, and its commercial composition/arrangement standard either, unfortunately.

I guess it is as everydoes… Could anyone translate it to me in much more practical way? I believe there are both good and bad or my work and I really need some practical guideline on how to improve.

Hope you guys would like to share more with my work. thanks!

I like a lot of elements of it. The panning is too much I think. Maybe don’t have it pan at all.

The piano is a little, poundy? Hard to describe. It’s not bad, but it’s not my favorite.

thank you so much jack. i am not a pianist indeed, i guess i won’t have great sense on making it ‘realistic’.
but still i need some direction on my work… i can’t figure out how to move on!

Hmm, maybe try a lower velocity and then boost the gain a bit to make up for the volume loss. Also, slightly varied velocities help a lot! What piano sample are you using?

The piano is panned too much and the strings which keep going both of sides are distracting.
At the minute 1:20 those other ones seem a bit fake, add some reverb.
