Many thanks for the comments and votes, you guys...

@ Georges: The marble is approx. 3 times larger than your common or garden marble.
Sorry, I don't have a photo of the set-up. It's two marbles (well, one large marble and a small glass ball) sitting in a pool of shampoo with a flash at the back over to the left and a flash at the front to the right. I laid a striped transparency film (printed out myself) over the flash at the back left which gave the image background a "refraction-ish" look. I wasn't specifically going for the "refraction" look but liked the effect it gave.

Here are two outtakes:

I really don't like water drop photos. At least I didn't used to like 'em. This is creating preferential dissonance with me. Hmm...

Sharpness is really a must in a challenge with reflections. You nailed it perfectly here. Top 3. A 10 from me. How big is that marble? Would like to see the setup of this.

Not a reflection, I fear... but... a refraction. Your title agrees with me, I think.

Still... this is gorgeous.
