Step 1:

Let's start out by creating a new file. I used a 800x533 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.

Step 2:

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.

Step 3:

On your layers palette set the flame scene layer's blending mode to Soft Light.

Step 4:

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.

Step 5:

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.

Step 6:

On your layers palette set the layer's blending mode from step six to Soft Light.

Step 7:

Duplicate the Soft Light layer from the last step.
