This is really the key issue I'd say, if your having to fall back onto your method of working to justify your output the chances are its suffering.

My earliest photographic teacher said something like "If you have to explain the picture, you missed it."  The image has to stand alone, without any explaining of how you processed it, what was going on outside the frame, what the viewer needs to pretend isn't there. It has to work for that viewer that doesn't read a caption and doesn't have the photographer standing at his elbow explaining it.

If you have an audience that is willing to take your explaination into account when they view the picture, that's great.
