    2nd.

    better contrast, better details in the 2nd.
    the 1st has got a silouetted person inside, and if present in the 2nd, would be good.

    i prefer the 1st one cos more natural. the 2nd one too bright for me.

    2nd better.. no.1 looks abit under and most importantly i think it'll be hard to get a good print from this copy..

    I prefer the 2nd one. The yellowish highlights of the roof more apparent, helping in framing. It looks more 3D in 2nd pic. MayB its intentional...but in both there seems to B a tilt. Juz my 2 cents.

    #2 for the higher contrast

    no.1 might be underexposed..but i think its closer to the real scene than no.2. no.2 looks overexposed to me. maybe somewhere in between might be nice

    #2 the lanterns are blown out.
    Just use the lantern in #1 for pic #2 and it will be ok.

    #1: slightly underexposed
    #2: slightly overexposed but is commonly seen as a good night photo
    if you wan to keep the detail of those overexposed area, maybe you can try merging both photos
