It really depends on the subject matter, and on how you'll mounting/displaying the image. Nothing makes me happier than a nice 17x22 piece of Epson's Velvet Fine Art paper. I generally don't like glossy stock, especially on large prints ... just too much glare, especially if it's going to wind up behind glass. The only way to really answer your question is to try some, of course. Remember that when you switch between glossy (or luster) and matte papers, you lose a bit of black ink as the printer does its dance. So, I try to plan my print jobs around doing a bunch of one type or the other. Definitely give VFA a try, though. It's lovely on certain types of subject matter.
