Next Saturday I will be attending a pre-opening of The Shard, Europe's tallest building in London UK. They say that you can view 40 miles from the 72 floor. My ticket is for 4:30pm which is around sunset time.
My question is, can you provide the best possible advice for taking photos through glass at night?
I have a Cannon 40D with a E17-85mm lens

If you are allowed to touch the glass, you could use a lens hood and place the camera in direct contact with the window. This way you meter for the light outside, cut out reflections, and don't have trouble with focussing through the glass. The lens hood shouldn't be the petal type, though, as this will allow the ambient light of the room through.
