From that distance, you can't really even tell. Can you? However, while you're riding it and the light is hitting the frame, it will be noticeable. Therefore, it's going to come down to your personal preference.
For what it's worth - I'm planning on going with Matte UD, for frame, fork, and wheels.
Also, I think some people will try to tell you there is a strength in this one or that one. I call BS on that theory. It's just the cosmetic layer anyway.

3k Matte versus UD Matte, Thoughts?
1 year 1 week ago #10333
this is UD finish, but painted in black gloss from Dengfu (not clear gloss as it comes as standard) I could not decide and I did not know at the time the differences so to play safe I pay the extra 40 $ and had it painted, probably adding few grams to the weight. The paint job was good, just few smudges under the rear derailleur holder.
