The differences between these two are that the images they are portraying involve different atmospheres. One being a calm beach and the characters being calm with each other while the other is at a high and intense place and the character is in conflict with his image. The fact that he is so high up gives it the unique feeling of something is about to happen because if the character was just standing in front of a bathroom mirror and his reflection was different you wouldn't feel the same way, less urgency to know why. The same with the first movie poster if the characters were placed in a different position or in a different place it would change the interpretation as well.
This is the new movie poster I'm created for the movie Dear John. This focuses more on the John character and the other role he plays in the movie and that is the role of the soldier. I still include an image of the female character but she is more in the background and isn't so much the main focus anymore and their relationship isn't the main concept anymore either. I used the flag as the background to enhance the importance of him being a soldier and patriotic. The audience that this new poster target is those that are into patriotic movie and into action. This image is more targeted toward guys and soldiers. This is something that they might find easier to relate to.
