Let’s start out by creating a new file. I used a 800×533 pixels canvas set at 72dpi, and I filled my background with a black color. Now insert a stock photo of a highway scene, you can download the image used in this tutorial here.
Now add a stock photo of a flame scene with electricity flares on your canvas, you can download the image used in this tutorial here. Then grab the eraser tool with a large soft brush and Erase the bottom part of the flame scene stock photo layer.
On your layers palette set the flame scene layer’s blending mode to Soft Light.
Duplicate the flame scene layer and go to Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur. Then apply a 3.0 pixels radius blur to the second flame scene layer.
Apply a marquee selection around your canvas and go to Edit > Copy Merged. Then go back to Edit > Paste, a copy of your current design should appear on your canvas with its own layer. Now go to Filter > Blur > Radial Blur, apply the settings below.
On your layers palette set the layer’s blending mode from step six to Soft Light.
Duplicate the Soft Light layer from the last step.
