Burnt highlights kind of ruin both.

#1 seems less clobbered than #2 but I agree with Slobodan.

Yeah, I know.  LR showed no clipped or burnt highlights in the histogram, but there you have it.   Trying to darken those areas yields only very unattractive brownish patches.

Try using LR's paintbrush tool with automask to tint the burnt white to a blue approaching the color of the sky. That might work.

Definitely #1, but I'd crop off the top down to about 2:1 -- to me, the image is all about the darker clouds, the sun rays, and the hills in the distance, and the spot of blue is just a distraction from all that. Maybe I'm just crop-happy, but that's my take on it.

Layer Fill mode yellow. Blend mode multiply. Blend if, split sliders to target highlights and lower opacity till you get just a little yellow showing in the burnout highlights.

I also vote for #1. The clipped areas are, in my opinion, less distracting in photo #2 but the hills and sky in #1 are much more interesting.
