I would have cropped the yellow tops out because they flatten out and distract.

Nice guiding lines bring my eyes straight to the barrel and the candle.

the foreground bottle blur supports the eye moving backward. The floor tiles are a bit too much, creating a busy feel. But I dig this type of shot-like books in a library.

A wine cellar is not a place many get to see. Very nice.
If the picture were a little underexposed (to give more prominence to the candle) and if the white balance was set to daylight (to give a yellow cast to the entire place), it might've looked better (or atleast matched the title better) I think.

I would have preferred a slightly longer lens so that the barrel would be comparatively larger in the frame. I think all the action is in the second room, so the longer lens could have also trimmed down on the first room. The second room looks so cozy!

Excellent shot. Nice work managing the exposure in what was probably very difficult conditions. Nice perspective and composition. Very well done.
