Colourful soup with smoked fish

We gave our selves a camera for christmas. The instructions contain 500 pages so we decided to just try it out. There are plenty of room for improvement but coming from me, this is a great picture.

It is a very simple but delicious starter, inspired by the Russian Borscht.
