It's hard to make effective comments when the context or purpose of the image is unknown. As glamour images, I would say the first is a not particularly flattering image of a rather attractive woman, while - as a glamour image - the second is, frankly, crap. But, as you've read, the second image invokes powerful responses. If you're trying for an image that people find unsettling, disturbing - you hit it pretty effectively. That "texturizing" imposed by your filter on the skin created a near-human/near-nightmare image that's probably pretty disturbing to most people.
Interesting process. Not for glamour, though. IMO. Perhaps quite glamourous to a necrophilic...
