The city exploring colour and black and white
Below are some images from city posters that contrast black and white with colour

Developing my ideas for a city poster
I collaged the images together using Photoshop, I selected landmarks and the beach to attract people to come to Portsmouth. I adjusted one of the images to black and white to add contrast and because the landmark is historical. I then added poster text. I am not sure about the composition, I don't think it is balanced enough to be my final poster
I created this poster using the same techniques as the first poster. I really like the images in this poster, I think the landmarks will attract people to visit the city. The composition is more successful also, all the images are well balanced and compliment each other.
I really like the photograph of the boats and fisher men in this poster, I think this image would make a good post card rather than poster
I used my contrasting black and white edit and simply added the text, this photo is of the centre of town, shopping will hopefully attract people to visit the city.
I really like the contrasting coloured text in this edit.
My final chosen poster
This is my best poster by far, I really like the images and the composition is well balanced. If I was to complete the project again I would try to get even more landmarks in, perhaps Southsea in bloom and more images of shopping and eating in Gunwharf.
