I think you forgot to note that you're using Photoshop Elements 2.0, not regular Photoshop 2.0. Version 2 was the one I started using, in the early nineties, so I'm quite sure it didn't look like that :)

It needs more depth. I'd recommend hand painting flares in flames. I painted a quick comet a while ago, using nothing but the brush and smudge tool.
