Looking at the categories, this could easily fit a number of them. there is a busy main road to the far right, a nice old castle "keep" and a lough with fishing boats, but I choose "castle"
I recently started the hobby of photography, and I live about a mile or so away from here, and often see pictures of the keep, but usualy from a different angle. So as the tide was out, I walked down to the shoreline and took this more or less as a "snapshot" with the camera set to landscape mode. as i am still reading the instruction manual :-)
I did remember to set the camera to "raw" and although I have photoshop, in this case I simply resized it to fit on here.

You have a nice composition here with a good POV. For me, the colours could be slighty stronger. I'm sure you could use photoshop to good effect!
I don't have photoshop but I have tried a workshop for you (you can click on workshop above). All I did was sharpened it a little, reduced the brightness a little and increased the contrast a bit. I'm sure someone with experience of photoshop could make a much better job!

brain - if you only live a mile away - go take some sunrise/sunset shots of this wonderful place!!! This has a good composition - i like the foreground in this one as it leads my eye around to the subject. the subject is about 1/3 across the horizontal plane which is good, but 1/2 in the vertical - try and avoid horizons at half way.
