This tutorial will show how to make an ad mixing different images and techniques in a simple way.
On a new document, make a gradient as shown below.
You can use a sunburst brush to make the sunlight (there are some at deviantART, like this one ) and delete below the horizon line.
Apply the filter Gaussian Blur (Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur). You can also low the layer opacity and apply a layer mask to soften the sunlight.
Add the lemon slice and delete below the horizon line. Place the bottle and rotate.
Place the image with the water and modify the colors using the command Color Balance (Ctrl + B).
Now use the Smudge Tool (R) to make the bottle seem to be fluctuating on the water. Add a layer mask to mask some parts making it transparent.
Insert the lemon slice again, but now distort it as you can see at the image below (Ctrl + T).
Create two ellipses, with the Elliptical Marquee Tool, in different layers: a green one and a white one. Blur the white ellipse to make the volume and reflex of the water.
Duplicate the group and put some lemon slices on the water. Don’t forget to resize it according to the distance.
