Of course this kind of slightly disturbing visual effect may have been the photographer's intent here; but if so, it's IMO a rather slick, gimmicky and contrived way to make an impact.

I have no problem with slick, gimmicky, and contrived as long as it is NEW and innovative, slick, gimmicky, and contrived photos.

But in 2 weeks, we are going to see 6-8 posts a day in the beginners forum (and a few in this forum) about how to duplicate this effect.  And some dope will tell them how, or worse, tell them about some plug-in that does it with no effort and thought required of the user.  Then, in 8 months, we will be swimming (pun intended) in awful fake reflection photos.

Something needs to be done immediately!  ARRRGH!
