Hmm, I'd like to think it's the top one because the colors are better.

From what I see here the colors in the top one are over-saturated. The yellow and red in the shirt turn into planar blobs, whereas the lower one has a subtle play of light and shadow in the creases of the shirt. When printed on large scale I'd think that becomes really noticeable.

Planar blobs? Click the links to see the original images, at full size. There is an almost identical amount of detail in them. I think the top one may have a bit more detail in the hair, but that could be due to the sun and the angle of the subject's head.

The white balance in the top one is better, particularly on the subject's face.

Well that's what I see here on my monitor, and it is more visible in full size.

E.g. in the top image the flower-like part left of the dragon head is an smeared red field, whereas in the lower image there is much more to see. In the top image the are several areas in red, yellow and white hues which show this smearing, in the bottom image it does not occur at all.

Could be due to different monitor settings though.
