Shooting Through Glass

I've got an image that's water damaged and almost completely stuck to the original glass. I'm not willing to attempt to remove the image from the glass. Thus far, my attempts to shoot it high res and do the restoration from that file have been pretty lousy. Any tips for getting a smooth shot and eliminating glare in this circumstance? Thanks!

Re: Shooting Through Glass

how big is the image? is it possible to scan it with the glass attached?
because that's what I usually do, just put it on my scanner and voila i get a digital high res version of the image.

Thanks. For some reason I was thinking that wouldn't work, but I gave it a try and it did. It seems like there's a good bit of glare from the glass, but I think it looks better than shooting it did.
