second and last photo of Bass Rock from North Berwick Castle

The Bass Rock, or simply The Bass,[5] is an island in the outer part of the Firth of Forth in the east of Scotland, approximately one mile off North Berwick. Its name, "Bass" is pronounced so that it rhymes with "mass", rather than as "base", as the term "bass" is used in music. It is 107 metres (351 ft) at its highest point.

This almost looks like a still from a fantasy film, with the soft and hazy glow warming the stones and sky, and especially with the small clouds in the distance over Bass Rock. Lovely. :)

let's continue the game.

it's dig art, not photography

how this pic looks like is only possible due to a LOT of digital processing, and i really mean a lot, so it's not photography..
all you took was a not very spectacular pic of something, pimped it up with photomatix and photoshop, and thats it...
do it's photomanipulation, not photography

my english is not good enought to continue the game so I'll try just last time. HDR is a technic of increasing Dynamic range what means more less the same that it corrects weakness of human eyes by giving us the chance of seing what really is around as... that is why i call it a photograplhy

Happy new year my friend

jep, thats hdr.

the other thing is tonemapping. you probably don't even know that photomatix does that to your pic.
your pic doesn't look like a hdr pic at all, it looks like a tonemapped pic...

anyway
kick in, cheers
