Are these reflections real or Photoshopped?

Compare the purple chromatic aberration

and the haloing on the left side of the arch in the reflected "original" above and in the "reflection" below. The latter is more detailed and saturated. That's odd...I mean for a reflection.

Also, notice the gap between the girl's hat and the railing above in the original, and that they intersect in the reflection.

I think two different images, taken at a slightly lower angle for the "reflection" (hence more chromatic aberration because of the steeper angle) and then the latter flipped and merged and massaged in Photoshop.

Original above

"reflection" below (flipped to show the difference)
