Charlie...best explanation so far from my view in the peanut gallery...jello just doesn't seem clear enough, the perspective doesn't seem right to have the heel connected to the diving board (there appears to be some decent separation between them)...but the tumbler...not sure it puts the shadow in quite the right spot, but it is very close...Ralph?
Just at the bottom and to the right of the shorts of the recently deceased, you can see the the circular foot, or round base of a small 'wine glass'...what looks like a star on the bottom of the pool is light refracted through the 'cut glass' design where the stem meets the glass. This supports his face.
[Upon further reflection...by the lower part of his left ear, is that the top of the glass? Would that make what I thought was the foot actually the shadow of the glass, and the foot is hidden under Mickey's body?]
The horizontal line to the right of the shadow of his right foot is;
a) the shadow from the clear fishing line submerged just below the surface which supports his legs, or,
b) the shadow of a small piece of glass or plexi-glass that supports his legs, where it sits on the bottom of the pool.
No Goofy prize for me please, I'll go for the inflatable Daisy

Note to self: Turn your negatives into positives.

The circular shape you refer to looks to me like a reflection of the shorts themselves in the surface of the 'pool'.

But if this is true, the shadow from the wine glass is cast in the wrong direction...it should be off to left of Mickey's center, though not as far as his own shadow...this is why the tumbler makes sense because it puts the star pattern right down on the bottom of the 'pool'. I can't see exactly what you're referring to with your other points, and you may well be right, but so far I'm still campin' with Charlie...or wait...in Charlie's camp...are those the same thing?...
