Christmas is Coming

I have done a little HDR but haven't spent a lot of time really thinking about it, so I decided to enter a contest this year and focus on making a decent HDR photo. I know that I am not Trey Ratcliff but I enjoy his work and I wanted to see what I would end up with. I tried this image 2 ways. The first one is with a 2 EV difference over 3 exposures and the second one is 1 EV over 3 exposures. Ironically I used to do this with film back in the 80s and 90s but they never looked this cool.

Which do you like better and why? Also I want to see your HDR images.

HDR EV -2, 0, +2 

HDR EV -1, 0, +1
