The User Interface of Photoshop is getting worse from version to version. 
1. low contrast
2. black UI is often very hard to work with. It is hard to read text and find elements.
3. no primary button (and the new ones are ugly as hell). You have now to read the labels to see where "Save" and wehre "Cancel" is.
4. no support for the eye with shadows on windows. So it's very hard to recognise if where a window ends and where is the underlying window. There is no visible border.
5. there is no clear separation between elements. I have problems to find things on big screens. I'm completely lost on some screens.

The whole UI just looks like a "I have to go with a trend, doesn't matter if it's useful or not". :(

I've decided to buy LR instead of Capture One because of the better interface and workflow. But now I'm afraid I will get the same horrible black UI on LR in the next version.

Please please hire some good UX Designer and just stop to follow silly trends.
