    I would definitely say that red or yellow would work best. They have the most visual pull of all colors. They instantly grab the attention of anyone looking at a photo or graphic design. Especially, if you use them as a spot color.

    I think red or a yellow would be nice contrast colors!

    Red and green may be.

    It is suitable for both of them.

    Both the contras are looking nice.

    The complements are the equivalents of black and white in photography. There are six: Red and Green, Yellow and Purple(Violet), Blue and Orange. When you look at the color wheel the color opposite is it's compliment. Using these colors together creates visual depth in your photographs.

    Red Cadillacs BY General Motors

    Red -- Cyan

    Blue -- Yellow

    Green -- Magenta

    Mnemonic for light primary juxtaposed to its complement (opposite).

    Intense or saturated values of any of the primaries - followed by the secondaries. So red yellow blue - then orange green purple. Then primaries plus white or black - so pink, maroon; teal, turquoise is the next level out. And then you are getting into pastels - less contrast unless you factor for intensity value.

    Source(s): Dad was sa commercial artist. Refused to explain this to clients - they would freak with too many choices. He would just say "This blue - or that blue. Waddaya think?"
