New Cover- Turquoise Water

I was asked to create both an English and a French ebook cover for Turquoise Water.

In the English version I appropriated the artwork that the author supplied me with to create the cover. In the French version I was asked to keep the artwork untouched and situate the text around the artwork. Which cover do you think works better?

English Version:

Eau-ENG

 

French Version:

Eau-FR
