Cooler or warmer?
3

Hi guys. Hope you don't mind, but would appreciate your opinions in helping me decide which version to go with. I've got another photo I can't decide on the white balance I want. Do you think it looks better cooler or warmer? The first is a cooler white balance temperature at 4550 and more bluey.

The second is warmer at 5333 kelvin and pulls out more orangey or yellowish colours. In some ways I prefer the first because I'm a fan of blue, it's my favourite colour. On the other hand, perhaps the second ones is slightly more subtle and richer in colours. Which do you think is more appealing? I can't decide which one to put on my flickr page. Many thanks for looking.

WB 4550

WB 5333

And for reference, this is the raw image OOC before processing.
