Start here: Icon-a-Day tutorial index

At the botto, are teh icons in order of creation.  That may be the best way.

One easy way...
Copy Image
On bottom image - Edit > Transform > Flip Vertical
Then, on same image - Layer > Layer Mask > Reveal ALL
Click on the layer mask
Set your foreground color to black
Go to your gradient tool
Set it to Linear Gradient
On the image mask, drag your cursor from the bottom
You can adjust the opacity to your preference and play around with it til you get what you want.

If you don't like my method, here are some links to some other variations.

Easy Professional Reflections in Photoshop
Realistic Reflections


I like to try setting the blending layers on the bottom image to either Multiply, Screen, or Overlay and messing with the opacity. It all depends on the colors, darkness, and background you want it to work on.

Hope this helps.

This gadget might also come in handy (and should be a lot easier): iReflector.
