It doesn’t look as though there was the same depth of shadows in this that needed the assistance … as much as in your first example.
Then one gets into the old “photo-realism” v “impact” v “subjectivity” triangle of variables … the last of which can take an image to all sorts of places.
For me … it’s a little over-saturated. Yeah - that’s part of the objective of HDR to reduce lighting contrast and increase colour contrast, so an inevitable consequence. I’m probably a more toward the photo-realism corner of that triangle kinda person, perhaps.
One thing I can say with 100% certainty … I wish I had that view when “only out for five minutes”.
