Creating of a real abstract piece

 
Now it really has the shapes of some king of fire- a very beautiful effect done very fast.

I will now apply only one layer style and set a layer mask. And overlay the mask with Black to White Hard Edged gradient.

Very nice!

Merge the layers. You have to leave only 3 layers to be there – Photo filter – background (non layer) and Base color layer.

I will now apply a Filter > Render > Lighting effect.

You should always remember of your composition. There is one very powerful possibility that PS offers you. It is a mere Flip horizontally tool. if you see
  
that the image looks still good if flipped – you are on the right track. It is a very powerful feature; I even have this function as a hotkey on my tablet.

Awesome stuff! Really poor grammar and spelling though but I could follow the steps well enough.

The effect on itself is indeed awesome...too bad I can't see how this should be a tutorial, no guidance whatsoever in what colors you use, etc.

Cool effect, but I must agree with Wrath...I can't seem to find the part where you add those circles that stand out so nicely in the end...

I could follow that at all. Loads of bits in it that explained very well. Where do the round bits come in?

For those that might be having a hard time with the awesome looking shape portion of the tutorial - I am not sure if this is how the creator is doing it via their tutorial but this is one way you can do it so you can continue on with this awesome looking tutorial. Once you get to the part where you have to apply the shape simply go to the channel tab, you'll see a new layer (I am unsure what the full name will be but part of it will have something mask in its name) click on this layer and make sure it is active and visable, it's ok if the rest of the layers are visable, also choose a shade of grey (Keep in mind here the darker the shade of grey you pick the darker the shape will appear in the actual image and the same for the lighter you pick, the lighter it will appear. AND keep in mind when you are applying your shape in the channel tab it will appear red, this IS NORMAL) Now apply your shape, the minor annoyance here is you cannot move your shape, so if you dont get your shape in the right spot you will have to delete the action via the history tab, not to bad of course but, I digress, apply your shape where you want it and once you get your shape just perfect turn off the layer transparency (If I said that right *shrug* thats the little eye thingie on the left, so Photoshop sees the layer as being off) make sure that is off and the other 4 are turned on as normal, go back to the layers tab and continue on with the rest of the tutorial! Of course, there might be a completely easier way to do this, this is just the only way I know how to do it, and no one else has chimed in and bothered to give their opinion on how to do it. =)
