Duplicate this layer:

clip_image107

Choose two these layers, hit Cmd/Ctrl+G to make group for them. Name this group as "fireball 1". Right click this group, choose Duplicate Group. Right click duplicated group, choose Merge Group. We have this merged group as a normal layer and remember to change the mode of it to Screen 100% :

clip_image108

Duplicate it many times and place it onto the rocks randomly. Also place them onto man's hands. Remember to resize them to fit the size of the rocks. I use 23 layers for this effect and call them from "fireball 1" to "fireball 23", make group for them to be easier to manage:

Step 21

To change the focus of this picture, I use Gradient effect. Make a new layer on the top. Hit G to active Gradient Tool. Choose Radial Gradient Tool with default color ( black and white). Drag a line from center to bottom:

Change the mode to Soft light 100%. Add layer mask to remove contrasted part on the top left and blur around burning circle:
