G'Day Phil - cheers for the feedback.

I set up a little outdoor studio on the garden table. I had just taken delivery of my tripod, so was testing it out - in all shots I used the tripod.

Placed a glass filled with tonic water on tin foil and placed a white teatowel behind this to get as much reflection and light as poss. I had the sun in some shots and clouds in others.

Used the rayonx 250 and as I said, unfortunately left the camera in Macro mode.

In all shots I was between 5-8cm away from the glass.

All shots F5.6 (No.3 F5) - ISO80 and in order 1/200, 1/400, 1/250, 1/400 and No.5 1/320 - all chosen by the camera.

Hope this helps, had a good one - Dyane

Thats an awesome idea with amazing results. They are the coolest photos I've ever seen.
Thanks for setup up details.

Ah well, its a Kiwi thing ya see !!! I also tried frozen rasberries which looked really good in the tonic water, but they were much harder to focus on - and after a bit they change the colour of the water to pink ........ so not really the effect I was after. Thanks for the encouragement and compliments.
