If you look carefully at both photos, you will notice several things.
First, the 'light' hasn't changed - at least not significantly - between the two shots. You will notice the same skin tones and the same rendering of form (ie. the hills & valleys and round things that make up a body).
Second, your camera direction has changed about 180 degrees. The direction of light has changed from camera left to camera right. You might find this rather surprising in view of the first observation.
Third, the most dramatic change in the two shots is the background. In the first, the background is busy & distracting; in the second, plain and simple. In the second, the background is predominantly blue and the skin tones tend to jump out at you while in the first, the skin tones fade back into similar tones in the background.
'Golden hour' is not really relevant to the differences between these pictures.
I sure could use a dose of that southern sunshine up here in frostbitten Ontario.
