Photo before changes:

Materials:

Open a photo of tomatoes in Photoshop.

Go to mode quick masks (CTRL + Q). Fill the workspace with black. In the photo should appear pinkish tinting.
White brush remove the area with the left tomato.

Exit mode quick masks (CTRL + Q) to create a selection around a tomato.

Create a new layer (SHIFT + CTRL + N) (selection should remain active).
On the created layer, fill the selected area with white color.
Transform selection: width / height = 96/96%. Cut out the inside of the selected white area. There should be a white stroke.

Install Fill (Fill) at 0%, blending mode on Overlay (Overlap).

Apply layer styles to create an outline.

Internal luminescence:

Gradient Overlay / Overlap:

Stroke:

Create a selection inside the stroke and fill the selected area with any color, parameter Fill (Fill) – 0%.

Apply the layer styles again:

Internal luminescence:

Overlay (overlap) gradient:

Add a new layer (SHIFT + CTRL + N), create a selection at the bottom of the tomato using Elliptical Marquee Tool (Oval selection) (M).
Fill the selection with any color, reduce Fill (Fill) to 0%.

Apply layer style Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap) for the created shape.

Now create a selection in the center of the tomato tool Elliptical Marquee Tool (Oval selection) (M).
Go to the original layer with tomatoes, copy the selected area and paste it on a new layer, which we place above all the previous ones.

Apply layer style Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap) with a gradient from black to transparent.

Paste the Water image and bleach it. Image – Adjustments – BlackWhite (Image – Correction – Black and White). Erase the area above the central circle and contour.

Change the blending mode to Overlay (Overlap) with opacity (opacity) 15%. Create a layer mask for the layer and fill it with a black and white mirror gradient.

Create a small oval selection at the bottom of the tomato and apply the transformation Warp (Deformation). Select – Transform selection (Selection – Transform Selection), Edit – Transform – Warp (Editing – Transformation – Deformation).
Fill the selected area with any color, Fill (Fill) – 0%.

Apply Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap).

We load the selection for the area where there should be a liquid, immediately below the central oval.

Set the parameter Fill (Fill) of this layer by 0%, apply Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap).

We load the selection of the upper part, above the central circle on the original layer with tomatoes. Copy the selected area (CTRL + C) and paste it onto the new layer, which we place under the layer with the central circle.
Move on Image – Adjustments – BlackWhite (Image – Correction – Black and White), we use the following parameters:

Allocation is left active, go Image – Adjustments – Levels (Image – Correction – Levels). Use the parameters as in the screenshot below.

Decrease Opacity (Opacity) black and white layer up to 85%.

To create a transparency effect, copy a small area from the right tomato and place it under the black and white background, then adjust the level Opacity (Opacity).

Load the selection for a tomato and fill it with any color, Fill (Fill) – 0%.
Add layer mask for the created layer, load the selection for the central circle and on the mask erase the selected area with a black brush with Opacity (Opacity) 30%.

Apply Layer style (Layer style) for the created layer.

Again load the selection of the silhouette of the tomato, activate the original layer with the tomatoes, duplicate the selected area (CTRL + J).
Place the copied part over all previous layers, bleach it.
Experimenting with parameters Levels (Levels).

You should get the following result:

Change the blending mode for the new layer to Screen (Lightening), erase the area under the central circle.

To create a reflection, insert the original color tomato on a new layer.
Change the blending mode to Color (Color), using a soft brush (B), erase the bottom and the edges.

Insert a photo with black and white ripples from a drop.

With help Eraser tool (Eraser) (E) soften the edges.

Change the blending mode to Overlay (Overlap).

Select the green leaves and paste them onto a new layer, rotate (CTRL + T) them to create a reflection effect. Place the layer with the leaves under the layer with the reflection of the tomato.

Apply Layer style (Layer style).

Add a layer mask, fill it with a black and white linear gradient, as in the screenshot below:

Load the selection of the inner part of the tomato outline, create a new layer and fill the selection with any color, Fill (Fill) – 0%.

Apply Layer style (Layer style):

Load the selection for the green part of the tomato.

Increase the parameter Saturation (Saturation), Image – Adjustments – Hue / Saturation (Image – Correction – Hue / Saturation).

Experimenting with parameters Levels (Levels):

Insert the black and white glass sphere.
Increase contrast with Levels (Levels).

Adjust the shape of the sphere with Edit – Transform – Warp (Editing – Transformation – Deformation).

Change the blending mode to Overlay (Overlap) with Opacity (Opacity) 50%.
Create a layer mask and fill it with a black and white linear gradient.

Duplicate (CTRL + J) layer with sphere and change layer blend mode to Screen (Lightening).

To create more reflections, draw a white shape at the top of the tomato.
Decrease Opacity (Opacity) up to 70%.

Apply for this layer Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap).

We draw a new reflection.

Apply a gradient from white to transparent.

Create a new shape for the tail of a tomato, Fill (Fill) – 0%.

Repeat the previous steps to reflect on the left side.

Create two small highlights using Ellipse tool (Ellipse) (U) and CTRL + T Transform.

Add a shine effect with a white brush in the form of stars.

We draw a thin white arcuate line and change the blending mode to Overlay (Overlap).

Insert a photo of broken glass on a new layer.

Change the blending mode to Screen (Clarification) and remove the area outside the tomato.

Load the selection for the hole in the glass.

Create a new layer and fill the selection with black, change the blend mode to Overlay (Overlap).

Insert the spray of water.

Add a layer mask and remove the background using a black hard brush.

Add orange shades to the spray using the parameter Selective color (Selective color correction).

Move on Image – Adjustments – Selective Color (Image – Correction – Selective color correction).
Adjust the color channels:

Change the blending mode of the spray layer to Multiply (Multiplication).

Duplicate (CTRL + J) the spray layer and change the blend mode to Overlay (Overlap) with Fill (Fill) 0%.

Apply Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap):

Once again we duplicate the spray layer and bleach it, adjust it. Levels (Levels) as in the screenshot below:

We need to get a very contrasting image:

Change the blending mode to Screen (Lightening):

Group (CTRL + G) all the layers with splashes and duplicate the created group.
Add layer mask for the first group and turn (CTRL + T) it, erase the extra areas near the outer contour of the cracked glass on layer mask, using black brush (B).

Add a layer mask for the second group, erase everything except liquid droplets and place them above the orange splashes.

To create a glass effect for the right tomato, we use the same method as for the left one.

Duplicate all layers with the left tomato and merge (CTRL + E) them into one, then reflect them vertically Edit – Transform – Flip Vertical (Editing – Transformation – Flip Vertically).
To create a reflection, move the duplicated tomato down.

Change the blending mode to Multiply (Multiplication). Do the same with the right tomato.

Merge (CTRL + E) two layers with reflection. Install Opacity (Opacity) at 75%.
Create layer mask, Fill it with a linear black and white gradient, as in the screenshot below.

Hold CTRL and click on the gradient layer mask to load its selection.
Apply filter Filter – Blur – Gaussian Blur (Filter – Blur – Blur in motion).

Add a white layer above the layers with tomatoes.. Fill (Fill) – 0%.

Apply Gradient overlay (Gradient overlap) to this layer.

Insert a small puddle.

Remove the background.

Duplicate (CTRL + J) the background and the layer with reflection, merge (CTRL + E) them together.
Load the puddle selection (hide the original layer). Copy the selection and paste it on a new layer.

Create a new layer, load the selection for the puddle again and fill it with white. Install Opacity (Opacity) by 75% Fill (Fill) – 0%.

Apply Layer style (Layer style) for the white layer.

Gloss:

Gradient Overlap:

We have the original puddle layer over the white layer. Change the blending mode to Overlay (Overlap).

Add a layer style BevelEmboss (Chamfer and Emboss).

Create a layer mask, fill it with a black and white linear gradient.

Duplicate (CTRL + J) the previous layer.

Duplicate (CTRL + J) all puddle layers and merge them into one (CTRL + E). Decrease Opacity (Opacity) up to 20%.

And here is the result:
