Not sure what you mean by "light was played" but I'll guess if you manipulated light to get these shots then that is what you had to do in order to get the image you visualized in your mind. Playing with light, to me, does not offend but rather is a necessity in achieving the 'perfect shot' at times unless it's a matter of waiting until the light 'naturally' adjusts during the day until the image is just right. The way I photograph my images the most is not by going out looking for the shot but rather the shot finds me. If the light isn't quite right, I make a decission to either wait until it is or create a lighting situation that works best.

Studios play with light all the time, it's done in wedding portraits and the like, and there isn't a photo magazine in print that doesn't not feature light manipulated photos.

You did a 'stand up job' on these. Be proud to post what appeals to you. Why you post should be to inspire others. All people are inspired, but you may not inspire all people. You are a unique individual with a style, .......your an artist.

Thanks for viewing and giving comments. Iused double exposurefor both shots to create an impressionistic feeling. In 1, the stamen and the filament wereslight down the petal on the right. To make them visible, I focused onfilament part and exposed itfirst before focusing on the edge of the petal and exposed it in the second exposure.

Another one I took of the leaf and the petal using double exposure to blur things out for funny effects.
