I look at it as not which one is better, but rather which one suits which (insert reason, location, etc). They are both fantastic in their own way. If there is a specific intention for the comparison, then more information would need to be provided.
They are both incredibly beautiful in their own right, but I like "First Touch" more due to the warm colors and the fact that it focuses on the image as a whole, as opposed to just the one focal point.
I think you should definitely keep both versions though!
Hhm, für mich sieht das obere Bild stimmiger aus. Ich mag zwar auch die kühlen Farben des zweiten Bildes aber da stört die scharf umrissene Münze der Sonne irgendwie schon. Die passt überhaupt nicht zum dunstigen und sanften Übergang der Landschaft und zieht irgendwie unvorteilhaft den Blick auf sich.
I personally like First Touch better. The light is just perfect for my eye to see all the gorgeous detail of this picture.
I also like Lonely Island but unlike First Touch, it seems focused on the one tiny island in the middle, rather than on the scene as a whole. I like viewing the entire scene, which is why I voted for First Touch.
But, in truth, both of these pictures are excellent. I hope this poll isn't going to decide the fate of one of these pictures, because I think you should keep both of them in your gallery.
