Planted tank background - Frosted film or Painted?

Hi all,

Which is preferred for planted tanks Frosted film or painted background?
If going for frosted film would matt white be the preferred type? What color looks good on painted backdrop?
I am inclined to go for a light shade of blue. Suggestions welcome.

Went ahead with the frosted film. I referred to this vid from Jurijs to build the frosted film background. It sure is a great highlight.
