I have two edits, which do you think you prefer?

The moody, w/Blue undertones?

Or slightly bright and warm:

Hmmm....tough choice. Normally with a sunset we expect things to be on the warmer side. But if it had just rained than the color temp could be a little cooler. I guess because I've seen so many over-processed "too-hot" sunsets lately I'm more inclined for the subtler cooler choice. But that's just me ;-)a

I think my normal answer applies: Half way between the two :)

Both tell a completely different story to me. The first reminds me of a cool mountain morning where there is a crisp bite in the air. Early spring. The second reminds me of a warm mountain evening where the sun is setting over the trees. Late spring or early summer. Both are enticing, but physically and emotionally I would rather experience #1.

Depends on what mood you want to impart to the viewer. The first is a bit cooler, reminds me of a Fall evening. It is almost like a fine art piece. The second is a bit warmer, perhaps a summer evening, more peaceful.

I like the first image best, which runs counter to what I've been into lately.

For some reason the first reminds me of a sunset and the second conjures a sunrise...Just thoughts. Each is very nice.

First one, but perhaps bring the sharpness on the road down a tad. It looks like it's made of broken glass it's that sharp! :-)

I like the colors on the first one but it looks a little too processed. I would try toning down the contrast or sharpness a little.

First processing is surreal (if you like it that way). Thats why it gets attention.
Second pic is more natural, although might want to drag some more light to it.

Oddly enough, it's exactly the opposite for me. First one reminds me of a sunrise, where the light hasn't actually been "out" yet that day; the second one seems like fading daylight. I'm with some of the others in that it depends on what you were capturing/trying to convey. Without any of that context, though, I would probably go with 1 even though I generally, also, prefer warmer tones. The first one seems to hold more promise of something good to come, than the fading of something that *was* nice.
