it's really easy. Is there any portion of the logo that you are looking into making? The flare in the background is a combo of a zoom blur effect, blurs, maybe a polar coordinate distory, and some others. The CGTalk.com text looks like it uses an outer glow w/ some wind blurring behind it. The CG logo can be done w/ some rotations and perspective distortions on the text and so forth. There are many many many ways to achieve those effects so yeah. Just play around w/ the tools you have.

The background flare can be created like this:
gradient from top to bottom , white to black. (on a square or somewhat square document)
Filter ->distort->wave .. . playaround until you got nice white spikes from top to bottom.
make sure the white things comes from the center now, otherwise do the gradient the other way.
then to use it easyli.
ctrl+A .. copy .. paste in a new channel. deselect, CTRL+mouseklick on the channel in the layer/channel window to make a selection of the white parts, dont mind if it looks like it misses some areas, it doesnt :) .
now switch to layers and make a new layer, choose color and fill, the last steps with the chanel thing is to get the flare with transparancy in the non-spiked areas.
