Experimenting with different filters, mostly 'cut out' I have created a few more potential backgrounds, I'll test some out in the game to see if I think they'll work.

As the photos I'd taken were all in the widescreen resolution and I didn't really want to crop them I added a 50% transparent layer at the bottom, which is where the game text box will be.
