I definitely agree that this composition is quite peaceful. However I actually think that the wind is the loudest part of this piece. It is very bassy and has a lot of power to it, much more than the murmurs of the people. Because the wind is quite loud, it almost sounds like this recording was taken at a beach. This is what makes it feel peaceful to me.
I feel like with the wind removal the piece as a whole is drained of a lot of substance. Perhaps amplify the crowd noises and use it as the background in its place? It certainly is peaceful though.
The wind is nice, its what you hear if you just walked through a park or another quiet place on a windy day, but I think it got a little stale. There probably wasn't much you could do about that though if your recording was mostly wind in the first place, so I don't think that's really your fault.
I liked the softness of this sound a lot. It is interesting the little things that pop out at you and you hear better when the rest of the sound is so low and soft. I especially liked the quiet rustling of leaves that seemed to be there throughout. It's really cool that you can take such a loud, busy, wind-filled sound and filter it out into something like this.
