Screenshot 2 would be improved by putting the labels in the font size used for the numbers, if not bigger, and banishing the numbers. If you look at the chart, you can already see that one of the data points is almost 2/3 of the total - why repeat yourself? Having seen it, you want to know what it is.

If you wanted to be funky, you could just have the text labels scaled by the data, for greater austerity of design.
