I've always been partial to black backgrounds because they make everything in front of it stand out.

I usually go for black backgrounds, but I like the "frosted" too. It's unusual, and reminds me of what it looks like underwater on a sunny day.

The frosted is distracting. Black is my choice.

I like the black one. I have been trying to decide as well which to go with, either buy black back ground or paint.

Black is better imo, the frosted made me think "cloudy water" at first glance.
