Critique Two takes

My wife found this old, piece of a cholla in the back yard and had it as part of the decoration in the entryway to the house. It's really small and I thought it would make a great macro subject. I ended up shooting it for a focus stack and I really like that result, but I also processed a version with a narrower depth of field. I'm curious what you folks like better.

Here's the focus stack version:

I'm curious which you prefer. As always, CC are greatly appreciated.

As a total side note, I've recently upgraded to a 5k iMac. Everything looks so fantastic on the monitor. The OS and web browsers are smart too so they scale images from web pages to display at the relative size they would on a normal monitor (so they don't look minuscule on the web page). I never even notice it, except when I'm posting my own photos. They look so sharp in PS and/or LR, but when I view the web versions, they just look blurry. The funny thing is I'd never notice it on a non-5K monitor. Has anyone else migrated to higher res screens and had the same experience?
