Colour board washes out a photo overlay

In a project I often use a colour board plus a photo as a means of displaying text detail associated with the image.
With 1 exception, that's worked fine. But I've come across a combination where the colour board - yellow in this case but I tried several including white - washes out the photo image over-laid on it. Screenshot - gong 1.
I've tried colur fixes and different colurs as the board backgriound to overcome this wash out effect, but eventually I resorted to just a blank background and white text: wash out fixed: screenshot - gong 2.
In the gong 2 shot note that radically different - but normal, the way the photo was shot - appearance of the overlaid image: not washed out, and no special effects applied in PD18.

Which seems to me to be a kluge solution - not one generally reliable upon.

Is there any way to avoid this wash-out effect of the colur board background on an overlaid photo??

The colorboard bleed occurs because you changed the opacity of the pic which causes the color bleed through issue, evident from your "gong 2 no colour background.jpg" pic.
