Default Tone Mapping

So I was messing around last night looking up different techniques in Photoshop and came across tone mapping. I use Photoshop CS2 and was looking at these tutorials:
http://www.dpchallenge.com/tutorial.php?TUTORIAL_ID=60
http://backingwinds.blogspot.com/200...dr-images.html

So naturally I had to try it out. Take a look at the attached images, the top one is done with my normal workflow and the bottom one is the one using the techniques in the tone mapping tutorials.

What do you think? Is the tone mapped one too Candyland'ish? Is it better than the non-tone mapped one? Anyone else use tone mapping as part of their normal workflow?
