Add a rectangle under the photo and apply a Stone 8 fill from the Fill Gallery, Stone Fills folder. Select the fill with the Fill Tool and drag the fill path arrows to make the fill smaller.
TIP: You can increase and decrease the size of the fill by selecting one of the outside control points with the Fill Tool then using the arrow keys on your keyboard to increase or decrease the fill size.
Send the fill to the back (Ctrl b). Having a little texture under the reflected light makes the effect more realistic.
Apply a Flat, Brightness 60% transparency to the four outer panels to create a stippled glass distortion. (Remember to use Ctrl + click to select within a group).
And here is the final image.
