The photo is very nice but I think the one last year was softer or with more light. This one is forboding in some way. Dark to the senses. I am not sure how to say it but this one is gloomy to me. I don't remember the last one evoking that emotion. This one seems hard (maybe from sharpening or contrast adjustment).
It is the same pic of the same spot but evokes a different emotion. That is what it is all about in my book.
