It is okay to be bluffing our flush draws here, since we have nice equity for rivers to come. Given the nature of this board, it is very hard for the SB to continue with great part of its range and we can be ahead of a lot of things that we also block such as T9, T8, T7, T6, K2s-K8s, hands like Ax, etc, so BB has a lot of hands that could see a river for free and it is okay to be bluffing our FDs OTT, making BB to continue only with its pocket pairs and very good draws, which BB didn't have.
For lower limits such as 2 NLHE and 10 NLHE, I don't mind your c-bet on the flop of 1/2 pot, but considering more complicated players, we should try to avoid c-bet so strong on a flop like this, where we almost never have the nuts (we are from CO, so we don't expect many QQ+ and AJ on CO's ranges), and after we invest 1/2 pot c-bet on a ultra dry flop, and we get check-raised on our faces we are in a pretty tricky spot, and many players are going to react like this, because many regulars are c-betting 100% range on dry flops, etc (i.e, read more Nathan Williams he talks a lot about this subject and much better than me).
