In early 2007 we had a challenge called "Looking outside".

We have had weeks of single digit temps, bitter winds, snow, sleet, and pouring rain. LOOKING outside is exactly what I want to be doing these days.

So, let's take pictures through the windows, whether you are inside looking out or outside looking in. Take into consideration natural framing and lighting as you peek inside or out.

If you choose not to frame but to capture a subject on the other side of the glass (in a zoo) here are a few things to remember.
To reduce glare, do not use flash
Keep the lens as close to the glass as possible to reduce reflection, a polarizer filter will do this also.
Shoot from a dark area to a well lit area.
A lens hood will reduce glare also.
If you must use a flash, hold the camera at a 45 degree obique angle to the glass, this will reduce the flash glare.

Normal rules apply.
