Snow Patterns and Software Filters

We had four or five inches of snow on the ground from recent small storms, but warm temperatures overnight really diminished the level to about half. The patterns of melting snow were evident when I first looked out the kitchen window this morning.

The first photo is lightly enhanced using contrast and lighting filters; the second is tweaked in Photoshop Elements using the Palette Knife filter and adding a slight blue tint.

Do not think I like one or the other better. I “erased” the leaves to achieve a more fanciful effect. So which version of this snow pattern photo is more aesthetically pleasing? Is the second version less “real”?
