Cool picture!

I don't think there is a reflection effect unless someone has created a plugin I am not aware of but you do have the ripple effect and I think that is basically the same image turned upside down to create the water with a ripple effect added.

Here is my attempt:

I created a tutorial using my method for water reflections here:

That is just the same image flipped upside down with the ripple effect added.

Same scene and I added a character to move and pinned his reflection sprite and flipped it and added ripple effect to match the water.

Pretty easy to do and you can do it for any object you want reflected in the water with no plugin needed.

Added in a swan paddling by to add depth. Pinned sprite and flipped for reflection and gave the swan the bullet behavior and ripple effect to match the water.

Notice how the player and swan images are on top of the water and background is behind.

Some other effects to try: Make the water an oil painting so lines are not so sharp and change the brightness setting so it is somewhat darker than the sky and that looks more like water.

This could also be a good effect for a ship on the ocean.

No there is no plugin used in my example at all.

Download the CAPX and it is simple to follow.
