close or far ?

from a distance the strength of light, the glare is apparent.  moving in closer it become less of a factor.  moving in very close it is not eliminated.  however its effect is greatly diminished.  so is glare always a disadvantage ?  in most photography it is consciously avoided.   and in some photography it is actively pursued.  which one pursues ?  sunrise and sunset shots are the exceptions that come to mind.  and if it were not a bit late and i not a bit tired no doubt others would come to mind.  so a glare an abundance of light on the flower is not always a bad situation.  one just has to set and play with the context.  three images…
