Thanks in advance for the C&C.

The HDR in #1 seems over done, but I'm not a big fan of HDR so I may not be the best judge. Apart from that, I think the composition suffers from the fact that you cut much of the building out of the frame.
I like #2 better, but I wonder why you have the exposure bias set at +0.33. I think the waterfall may be a bit blown out as a result. Hard to say, but a lower exposure may have allowed more of the stones behing the falls to show more detail.
#1 looks flat to me despite the HDR. I see individual stone shadows, but judging from the sun location, the parts of the building I would expect to be in shadow are not. It looks very fake.
I honestly think there's too much texture in this picture. My eyes need a break.
#2 looks like a computer generated model. It's very dull.

CC: #1 is a nice HDR attempt but I do not like HDR photos much so I will not CC
#2 is a bit too soft for me.
