The image has been depicted on my mind vividly for more than a week. Finally, I found the time to execute it.

1 - I made a glass tank with the dimension of 3"h x 2'd x 3'w.

2 - Background was a blue paper with a 60W blue bulb behind it.

3 - I placed some blue tack on top of the film container and pressed the glass on it carefully. Gently I adjusted the glass to the angle I wanted. This sounds easier than done, took me more than 30 minutes to get it they way I wanted.

4 - Then I filled the tank with water. I added dye into water to get the blue effect.

5 - I adjust the lights and glass. To get the desired reflections I have to wobble table. I took a shot on every wobble.

6 - After more than 10 attempts I finally got this shot.
