It's more personal preference than anything, but I, for one, hate glossy with a passion.

Glossy is only good for snapshots, IMHO. Lustre frames up better and doesn't show fingerprints when touched.

Ditto for prints.

For Asuka books, I use the glossy page though.

Luster, although I do love the look of Ilford Smooth Pearl paper that the local lab carries.

I just did some test shots on glossy, metallic, lustre, and matte. The same image POPPED on glossy, but marked with finger prints like mad. It was superior color and contrast wise from all other prints. Metallic was a big bust.

I anticipate 90% of my images being on lustre. Despite my preference for glossy.

I'm actually a little surprised by the responses so far. I've always preferred lustre, or matte too but I thought glossy was "in". On a side note, I do think high key and sepia images look awesome in metallic.
