I don’t understand how you rotated Carbon, please explain? Shouldn’t it be a mirror image!

A 180 degree rotation was performed along the C2-C3 bond. No, it should not be a mirror image – it should retain the same configuration. In the starting product the configuration is R, and if you look at the product it is also R.
