Don't mind seeing someone else's take at all!

In this case I prefer the more muted soft colors of the original. Dawn light is usually subtle and rather low saturation. The dawn the morning this was shot was very soft, very muted, and almost like water color paint. Very faint colors running into each other and a bit of mist/fog.

The more saturated version looks like sunset to me, which while pretty, tells a different story.

Edit: Didn't notice the texture at first. That I really do like and might do to this image if I get it printed, just without the saturation boost.
