Which is the more print worthy file?

Original DPP4 edit with standard color profile and highlights and shadows tweaked.

Some dodge, some burn, some sponge applied in Affinity Photo. Dodged the highlights, burned the shadows, and did a bit of vibrancy and saturation to the greens (then dialed the yellow down a bit in the green).

The major change I see in the 2nd version is you have raised the white level of the highlights in the water quite a bit which looks better in my opinion. The next biggest improvement I see is you increased the saturation in the bright foliage.
