The first one, because of the detail in the buildings entirely. They're both entirely the same otherwise, at least as far as I can tell, and the buildings are way too dark in the second one, if you were going to go for that effect then I would just suggest silhouetting them entirely and not just making them dark like you did there. I really like this photo actually, the more I look at it the more details I notice like the mountains in the background over the water, those are very nice too. The first one is definitely better though at least in my opinion anyways.

I too really like the first one for a number of reasons. Firstly it look much more natural then the second one; the second one the sky is too saturated and the buildings are to dark. I also like the first one because the mountains is the background are more prominent since the photo is lighter.

I concurred with jct us comments.
The first one looks more natural whilst the 2nd looks a wee "weird" (maybe because of over saturation.

Cheers.

the 3rd one, color seems not to blend well with the subject. a bit hazy and underexposed. again lacks contrast. a black and white architectural image with a strong sharpness and contrast would be advisable.

I like the first one. The crop on the 2nd is too tight for me.

I prefer the first one, at least on my monitor.. I might prefer the second one if printed, hard to say.

Oh, I really like that latest version, it's very nice and the tones look great in it. I like that one a lot more than the first two actually, you did a great job with the processing on that last one.
