I was wondering if GO was necessary on PK prints? On some of my work the GO just ruins my vision. I have found that my works look best on either Canson Rag Photographique, which no GO is needed anyway. And Canson Platine Rag and Jon’s Type 5. This being said I have found that I like the way my prints look without the GO on the Platine and Type 5. The only noticeable difference is when viewing from the side you can see the gradations in a type of metallic form, which I really do not mind anyway. Does this make any sense?
If you don’t want it, don’t use it. It’s art, there are no rules.
