That wasn't a remark for your photo, just a general suggestion for everyone.

Yes, I've replaced the brush with a radial gradient, thanks for reminding me. I should also note that I made a master of this on a giant canvas so I can re-use it in other photos and scale down for the photo. That way, the gradient doesn't deteriorate.
