    when does one print glossy or lustre? I have a competition entry to post (pet portrait) and I have it printed both ways but I'm not sure which one I should use to be honest. Though I think the glossy looks best close up and the lustre from a short distance but they both very nicely printed. Thanks for your help!!

    Isn't that a matter of personal tastes in the end?
    Like my own choice would always be "glossy" since I find those photos look clearer and more detailed. And I just guess detail is one of the features the jurors will look for in the competition?

    matt mostly to hide the defects for me... Sometimes a large print is matt just because they don't look as soft after enlargement with matt finish.
