Think I may have had a CPL on. If you look on her neck area though, there are reflections of something which makes her neck look about 100 yrs old!!Folds of some material I think.

You sure? CPL rarely has that much effect this square on to the glass surface. You usually need about 30 degrees or so on glass to make it happen with a polarizer. Looks to me that it is your own darker reflection that is keeping her details in tact helped by a bit of contrast punched tone mapping. This tends to be my reflex when shooting through glass while CPLless.
Anyway, nice one.

Oh and Jon

Quite like yr photo of Lucie. How did you avoid too many reflections? Assume her face was really pressed up against the glass?
