Default This or that? Printing w/PP or w/out PP

There was a Living Social deal for metal prints the other day and I decided to give it a shot ($39 for a print that is regularly $139. I thought that was a decent price to buy in at for a 16X20).

Anyway. My question is this. I can print two photos. I want to print a daytime water and cloud shot and a sunset shot and I can't tell if I'm better off with them au natural or with some post-production. I don't want the prints to be washed out so I'm thinking the PP is better but I wanted outside opinions. Please look! Thanks!

No PP

Edit: Here is the print website that offered the deal in case anyone wants to look into the product: http://imageonmetal.com/

I'm on my laptop right not and really can't give you a good a/b comparison but I will take a look later today.

One thing you might try is to get some cheap 5X7 prints made, it might give you a better idea how they might look printed. Not sure?

My gut feeling was PP on the day time, no PP on the night time. The day seemed a little washed out and didn't have enough contrast to make the colors pop so I thought the PP helped that a bit.

I took a look and I think I like the no PP on the night time and PP on the day time but it needs to be toned down a little.

I used a preset. I'm not well versed in manual PP yet. Anyone really good with PP that would want to take a shot at it with the original? I'd like to see the difference between a good manual edit and a preset.
