I don't like the added lens flare. Looks cheesy to anyone who's seen it in photoshop before.

A sillhoette with flare kind of = photoshop. It's very unatural.
From the 2 original shots I preffer the 1st. The 2nd has a few details which is not ok. Either sillhoette,either full amount of details on the frozen action. (flash help)

I liked the #1 better, but I really think if you merge exposure on those and get the silhouette of the biker on the #1 and the soil on #2 merged you'll have an AMAZING photo!

Yes, it's unnatural, but the 2 images posted have both been edited with a degree of tone mapping. There's little data left in the JPEGs to extract anything out of. I've mentioned that I wasn't entirely happy with the image - the flare being an issue, the other the lack of detail that one can extract, but consider the image without ithe flare - there was little else to have been done to pull any detail from the bike rider. There's nothing left in the JPEG for filling.

Therefore simply merging #1 & 2 isn't possible with the 2 images shown. Given originals, perhaps, but tone mapping has made it impossible in the JPEG format.
