Photography: Interesting Comparison

Recently, I shot some photos of a property.  The property owner also hired a professional photographer to shot a series of photos.

Here are a couple samples.  The comparison is interesting:

Exterior shot by me:

 

Exterior shot by pro:

 

Interior shot by me:

 

Interior shot by pro:

OK:  He shot the interior with a focal length of 12mm.  (I checked the EXIF data for his shots.)  I shot at 18mm.  (For some reason, I had decided I didn't like my 12-15mm lens.  I guess I need to revisit that. <s>)

But what struck me was the amount of "color correction" he applied to all of his shots.  It's particularly noticeable in the exterior shots. 

I'm not sure whether or not I like the colors punched up quite that high. 

Anyone want to volunteer an opinion?  It's OK.  I won't be hurt if you like the pro's style better than mine.  <s>
