Preparing images - choice "drop of water" with mirror effect
Clone first level (mirro image) and apply overlay style
Test multiple layers (with overlay and/or soft light)  and color correction
rotate image and using "perspective wrap function" (see pivot in action in more ways)
You can add some effects and/or layer adjustment (i tried with extrusion)
