Similar set-up to the others, but instead of using my lightbox I used a large sheet of white Perspex to lay the bottles on, with a slave flash underneath, and a large softbox above to add the extra light reflections on the bottles.
I achieved the iridescent look to the bottles using selective color.

1/2000 sec
F/7.5
ISO 50

Hope you like it anyway :o)

I'm still learning this photography lark, so please forgive me for asking this. What is the advantage in using such a fast shutter speed for an image like this?

Ian, there is no great advanage apart from no camera shake of course, it's just that the lighting I used was all flash and required a high shutter speed.
