Captions for Busy Slides

Ideas for caption boxes and other elements used on slides with busy background images--I keep the player (skin) neutral.

Sometimes, I use a completely different color on busy backgrounds, so the caption boxes don't blend into the image.
When in doubt, a dark neutral almost always works.
A very different color than the slide content makes the caption boxes really pop.
Some screen shots are difficult to improve but caption boxes that stand out is a good place to start.
When I use red, I prefer to use a darker shade, as shown here. Easier on the eyes.
Completely different shade of blue in the caption boxes here but it's neutral, so it works.
