Below is a graphic based on an example found on a web site.  The graphic shows two rows of photos, with two photos in each row.  The photos are of tree foliage, creating a dense distracting background.  Over the top of the photos is the instruction "Use arrows to navigate our site then press select".  This text is in green, making it difficult to read against the foliage in the photos.

Two arrows are below the instruction, with a graphic of "Select" between them.
