I'd say the first one. v2 looks a bit green.

Have you tried Photometric Colour Calibration?

I like 2, I think the bowl looks deeper further out.

number 2 mainly due to a little less contrast and better highlight preservation. Ideally though you would want to take a bunch of short exposures 30s or less to pull our the detail from the burnt out central area.
