If you don't like the new transparency features in the OS X Yosemite interface, there is an easy way to turn them down, and while at it you can make the all of the UI features stand out quite a bit more and not blend together as much as they do by default.

This is what the differences look like when looking at Finder.app.

Default Yosemite look
The background image bleeds through parts of the interface.

Increased Contrast Yosemite look
No background bleeding through and much more solid outlines on the controls.

To turn these features on, go to System Preferences and then Accessibility.
