Architectural Photography: Metering

 I wanted to capture all zones 0-10.
0= sky
10= dark alcove
Zones 0 to 10

I wanted to capture the detail of the entire scene, so I used a high f-stop (smaller diameter) to do so.

0= sky and high light on concrete
10= alcove 

I wanted to capture Zones 0-10.

I'm not sure if this means that I actually did capture the blackest black and the whitest white.  There is no absolute white or black in the photo, which I took as a good thing because the high and low ends of the photo are not burned out. But when using the zone system do I need to have these values in the photo?

0= sky and facade
10= lower right and flag poles
