Personally I prefer the first. It's hard to see the detail in the fireworks in the second.

I would have to agree I like the first the blue sky of the second seems a bit un-natural

I find the sky distracting, I'm guessing it's at least partly caused by too aggressive noise reduction.

I also prefer the original....with that said, the composition is nothing to write home about. Nothing you did wrong, just where you happened to be when the fireworks went off.

Don't know if it is a crop but if it is, I would put the fireworks off to one side or the other.

Exactly. Also your horizon is off a bit (slanting to the right).

Straightened, cropped, used PS Hue/Saturation to up the saturation in cyan, blue, yellow and red.... and darken blue and cyan. bumped the contrast up just a tiny bit. Used desaturation tool to clean up some of the weird blues on the boats below the bridge. Here's what I came up with.
