To glaze, or not to glaze

Being a bit of a klutz, I never get through a framing session without spilling red stuff on mat board.  So, for shows in my gallery and the PhotoZone gallery, I choose to frame without glass.  If I am showing in a more formal gallery, then I give in to the norm.  But everyone I talk to agrees that images look much better without the added reflections.

Certainly, glass protects the image, but in my case it doesn’t matter too much since I print my own work.  Cost isn’t the issue if an image shines with a more intimate vibrance.
