First, before you start to decide for yourself what is and what is not an HDRI you should first know what a real HDRI looks like. I've attached two good examples below. CS2, CS3 or a specific HDRI program are required to make an HDRI. Overusing the shadow highlight and saturation tool does not make a normal, single exposure photograph an HDRI. The whole idea of HDR images is that there are multiple exposures (3+). Also, HDR images use 32-bit color. So, Matt, unless that train was stopped in your image, there is no way you could get that result after running your images through the HDRI process.
