Reply to "participle subject advice needed"

Hi. Thanks for the replies, much appreciated.

One last thing, what do you think of parallel sentence structure. Is this a must, or a just a style of writing.

I wrote about a man entranced by a  pile of diamonds:

"Dazzling, hypnotic, as the multicoloured waterfall caught the lights."

But i was told off, stating that it should be dazzling, hypnotising,

What do you think? Is it a rule to be strictly obeyed, sometimes obeyed, or is it just an optional writing style?

Many thanks. John.
