Default Which is better?

This shot came from the camera looking a little more like a painting than a photo. (at least I think so) I did a little touch of PP to it and wondered which one you prefer? Any comments or critic are welcome.
#1


#2


If anyone would like to have a go at it, be my guest.

Hi GW,

I usually like more muted saturation and contrast, but in this scene, I prefer #2. The blue in the sky adds to the color gamut and the boosted saturation of the other colors adds to what I think is the main appeal of this pic -- the play of colors.

If you could combine the brighter foreground of #1 with the bluer sky background of #2, IMO it would be ideal.

GW, if it looked like a painting maybe that is the treatment it deserves. Here is my go at it!

I too liked No. 2 and your latest is very nice also.
It is a lovely scene and I thought I'd have a go at painting it....
