NY skyline was desaturated. Layer placed over a solid black layer and the blend mode set to difference, the opacity was lowered to 85%.

Lines painted by stroking a pen path with brush of white color. Outer glow applied to them with a blue color. These were skewed with the free transform tool for this perspective. Opacity was lowered.

Light Cycle masked.
step 4 of 7
The masked bike was duplicated twice and both layers placed beneath original. One for the reflection was transformed via warp and skew. Its blend mode set to linear dodge and opacity lowered and a gradient layer mask was used on it. The other copy has a motion blur filter and the blend set to linear dodge also.

more glow effects, painting and smudging
step 7 of 7
The lightcycle layer was treated to high pass filter and parts erased. My grid is composed of a rounded rectangle path stroked with a blue brush. Many duplicates made and merged into 1 layer then it was transformed for perspective.
