Make new canvas with your text in it.

Duplicate the layer.

Choose the first layer (original layer below the copy layer) then rasterize this layer with Layer>Rasterize>Type.

Flip the text in above layer with Edit>Transform>Flip Vertical.

Then arrange the position of that text shadow below the original text.

Now we give this text reflection with some touches:

  • We give gradation effect. Layer>Layer Style>Gradient Overlay. In Blend Mode choose Normal, Opacity: 100, Style: Linear, Scale: 100, Gradation: Black to White, Angle: -90.

  • Then choose Filter>Distort>Ripple with Amount: 150 and Size: Medium.
