Obviously try to stay away from images with any degree of detail.  
Details will make it more difficult to focus on the area of importance - 
i.e. the foreground.

I tried this theme out with a large variety of backgrounds. Textures & 
colours - gradients, lighting & plasma effects work very well but beware 
of bright areas spoiling the contrast of the text on top.

There aren't really any hard & fast rules here - just suck it & see ;)
