Which is Better?

I need to know for a photo contest I am entering.

Same shot, just edited with different exposure adjustments.

The difference is subtle, but the second photo appears to have a bit more contrast so I think it is a tiny bit superior.

Thank you both for your input. Based on your replies and those from others, on the CA forum, I ended up going with a version between the two :)
