~Normal vs HDR?~

Took a few pictures on my way to work this afternoon and this barn near Ghent is a new one for me. I travel alot of backroads around this area and how I've missed this one is beyond me.
Just for fun which picture do you like best, Normal or HDR.

Normal…..

HDR….

      Not "normal" or "HDR" question..Only:What do I want? Why do I wish? How the most effective one to express?
      Two nice shot are here.

      HDR is a tough sell for me... have almost never seen one that I like. They never look "real" which is what I think of as photography. In this case, I agree with Kangshung, that the HDR too surreal.... and snow isn't grey. Gee, guess the short answer is "normal"! :)

      I like the natural looking first photo. Nice composition.

      I do like barn photos. Personally, I like the normal photo the best. I believe the HDR is surreal look which as someone else said adds mystery. Thanks for being open to the comments! :)

      Both are very good, I would prefer the first, but the second gives it that mysterious look, so guess it would be however you wake up in the morning. :-)

      I definitely like the first one! It looks natural! The snow is white instead of gray :P Anyways keep up the good work!

      That's a difficult question - I think I prefer the first one. Then again the second one is great :-)
