Its all a matter of perspective

So I have some architectural interior photography on www.icpix.ca . Generally, these are shot with an ultra wide-angle lens, and are typically very distorted. You can get specialized lenses for this task (Tilt-Shift Lenses), you can use a level to set up the camera (which I clearly did not do originally - see below) or you can correct a multitude of perspective "sins" in Photoshop. I recently received some comments on the nature of the perspectives of the interiors being too distorted to market to architectural community. I'd like to know your thoughts. Review the images below and tell me which one appeals to you more, the first of the second?
