A slice of orange cut in half and placed on a mirror. Added a bit of "juice" to the edges of the orange. Placed a large piece of blue mat board above the set up to reflect blue in the mirror.

Very cool photo Connie, and in reading the caption, it sounds like it was a lot of work to get the photo. (I consider that a lot of work, maybe it isn't much for you :). It paid off though- great photo.
