Totally agree about the Whisper cover. It's essentially the same as the other one with identical elements (a girl in the extreme foreground and a house in the back) but Whisper is so much more dynamic by the simple artistic choice of lowering the angle and making the house appear more ominous. Her eyes are shiftier, even the wind is gustier on Whisper, compare those blowing scarves. Fantastique!
