Honest feedback would be appreciated.

Actually a nice shot but with very dark shadows. Maybe you should take a photo like this in the morning or afternoon.

Thanks for the compliment edge360, and welcome to Camera Labs.

In this sort of situation though I particularly prefer to add strong shadows to give a focus point and a sense of depth. I have quite a few shots of this winery and others without shadows, or little at best, but they come out very flat and boring.

For example, if the distinct shadows of the staircase were not present, then there would be now particular point of focus for the mind's eye too be drawn to as there are too many objects present in the photo.
