HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. There is not such high dynamic range in your scene, so you just used the local contrast enhancement capabilities of some HDR software to achieve a particular look that you liked, but in no way this is HDR.

Said that, I could accept your image as a good looking one. The Beetle image is terrible.

Is there a philosophical difference between tonemapping and dodging&burning? I'd assume that a Photoshopper with bad skills/taste could produce images on par with the worst tonemappings out there?

You never know when the worst photoshopped mistake is going to be the next big fad when it comes to art and advertising  :o
