I chose to look up how to make an image look like it is reflected in water. This technique involved creating a lot of layers with various blurs, noise, and smudging to distort the image and add a water ripple effect. The tutorial I used named specific settings for blurring which, on their image, worked well but did not work as well on mine so there was a lot of testing the settings. I also added a layer that is a blue color to make the distorted image seem more like water. I followed a similar process of blurring and lowering the opacity to make it blend well.
I chose to make a water reflection because I have always found it interesting. Making a water scene has always seemed so difficult to me so figuring out how to do it was very rewarding. Here is the link to the tutorial.
