Japanese Maple macro shot

Here's my first week's photo for the 52 week course I'm taking with Kim Klassen called Beyond Layers.  It was a grey rainy day here and I think that must've influenced the shadows of the background.  I couldn't decide which of these I liked better.  The top one I reduced the soft light's opacity by quite a bit.  What do you think?

That is a lovely photo. After going back and forth between them about a dozen times, I'd say I like the second one just the tiniest bit more. There's something about the colors, they seem richer to me. :)

I couldn't tell the

I couldn't tell the difference at first, but then I saw it. So I'm not a good judge, I guess. I do like the first one better! {:-D
