Yes you should!!!!!

Seriously - I do enjoy PP my shots but ever since I got the Olympus E-30 (I think it was their first camera with Art Filters, at least it was the first I got) I have loved them.

Fell instantly in love with the Grainy B&W ones - reminded me of old Kodak Tri-X films.

Current favorite (on an EM-5) is the Dramatic Tone, though I do like the B&W version that was added on the EM-5.

What I like about using them (and to be honest I generally shoot RAW+JPEG so I also get an unaltered version), is you get instant feedback of that particular shot and the effect. That way I can decide if I want to change something while I am still where the shot was taken.
So no I don't think you should feel "guilty". Just enjoy yourself.

BTW - I do think the Dramatic Tone was a great selection for that shot you posted.
