Note the Mill Falls one. He's "lightened" the background picture. Notice how this gives it a more ethereal quality and also moves it back behind the type. You can also do that with a slight blur or out of focus, but this is the most effective for something like this.

The hard red and yellow covers do the opposite, and very effectively.

Some might say it would be better to run titles and bylines bigger, but when you look at them, I think you see that reading is not a problem, mostly because they are very concretely separated and contrasted.
This is another advantage of the three-bar approach. It makes it really easy to snap the type out.
