1.
 

Open any photograph you want.

I have opened a snowy scene from Norway. Photo should have winter background. Don't open photo of a sunny beach :)

 
 
2.
 

Create a new layer.

 
 
3.
 

After than click above on Edit and choose Fill...

In a new windows set Use to Black and click OK.

 
 
4.
 

The whole layer is covered with black color.

Press D key, to set black and white colors.

And then click above on Filter, Noise and choose Add Noise...

Set the same settings like I did and click OK.

 
 
5.
 

We will enlarge the filter layer now.

Click above on Edit and choose Free Transform.

After that set above the Maintain aspect ratio and set width or height to 400% (see my pic) and confirm changes.

Set the blending mode of layer to Screen (see my pic).

Screen mode hides the black color.

15.
 

After that click above on Filter, Pixelate and choose Crystillize...

Click OK.

 
 
16.
 

Click above on FilterBlur and choose Motion Blur...

Set the same settings like at first time, only set the value of Distance a little higher, that's all.

Click OK.

18.
 

In Levels window set the pretty much the same settings like I did and confirm changes.
