make a new layer and fill it black (edit>fill) now add a lens flare (filter, render, lensflare) to the center of your new layer, and use these settings: 50-300mm zoom, brightness 130. then apply plastic wrap (filter> artistic> plastic wrap) use the same settings we used previously. set the layers blending mode to screen.
