Sleeping with the fishes

Shedd Aquarium - Chicago

It was very difficult to get good pictures in here, because of the reflections off the glass. Flash photography wasn't allowed which helped, but all the signs and people showed up in the glass. Any idea of a filter that might get past this? Polarised or something?

Camera: Canon EOS 40D
Lens: EF16-35mm f/2.8L II USM
Exposure: 0.017 sec (1/60)
Aperture: f/2.8
Focal Length: 35 mm
ISO Speed: 800

circular polarizer can help, but not cure. Shoot at 45 degree angle to the glass as well. Unfortunately, no magic trick, just patience and experimenting with camera height, angle to get rid of reflections
