Default Which one is edited better?

I took this picture in Maine this summer. Both images are a set of 5 bracketed images put together. The first one here was manually put together in Photoshop CS4 and then completely edited in Photoshop CS4. The second one was put together with an HDR program called Bracketeer, then edited in Lightroom 3. I was just wondering, which image is better?

Thanks

i like the first better. I think the 2nd one has too much yellow and looks even more fake.

This pic looks familiar. Did I see it on another site. I think I added a beam of light to it.

Ok thanks. The more I look at it, the more I agree. And Bynx, I believe I've posted it on this site before.

Sorry, but I'm in the minority. They're both good, but I like the second one better.

The only suggestion I have is to make the verticals of the building actually vertical -

The first one is more striking. Definitely it presents the scene better!
