Working on my demo reel would like some critiques -

My initial impression is that this is a "religious" or faith based video however I really can't be sure. I would have liked to have heard some of the dialog, one to establish what niche' you are trying to fill and two to see if you can control audio both as capturing and then placing it in the edit. It would also give a little more continuity to what you are trying to depict.
Some of the shots need color work so that they can flow better together i.e. 0.15 (reddish) to 0.17 (blue) 0.19 yellow.
On your close ups really concentrate on snapping those eyes in focus.
You have a good foundation just need a little nip and tuck to really tighten it up and present yourself in the best light possible.

i would maybe cut back the length of that clouds time lapse. and maybe take out that tight shot of the girls face. just being omega nit picky, but other than that, it looks swell.

Starts off a bit slow, ie, lots of closeups not really showing a broad range of shot types. Mix it up. Also match it to the music, but maybe something more exciting, that music put me to sleep :)

Overall it needs color work. Not just the tint but the exposure could use to be more unified.
You've got a shot in there where the girl's hair is in focus but not her face. I'd cut that.
In the time laps shot there's some random thing in the lower left corner that looks bad.
All the shots are too long and not much is happening. Frankly the video is boring.
You need more stuff in there. Go out and shoot some interesting things, some super close ups, some camera movements whre you follow action, and try to make it more interesting.
That's my 2 cents.

I didnt feel that there was any energy. I would change the song and restart.

Yeah, not to dishearten, I just didnt feel any interest in the shots.

i dont really get what you're selling yourself as, but if you don't change the music maybe put it on a site where the music can be muted.
the shots just seemed random.
