To Trim or Not to Trim

After a long wait, three out of four of the windows in our new kitchen were installed today. Our contractor is not planning on putting another piece of trim under the sill, and instead tiling the backsplash all the way up under the sill.

I think this will look kind of funny but also think that opinion is perhaps being impacted by the current gap under the sill. What I was thinking was a piece of trim with tile below it.

SO, which do you think would look better?

I've included here several photos of the space, including one with the sample backsplash tile. I also am posting a picture of the spot for an adjacent casement window (husband wanted to be able to hand things out to the screened porch) and an existing window that's across the room.
