I prefer using a radial gradient instead if just a colored brush, you get a bit more control of the falloff and it is easier to mix in colors in it. Try it if you haven't already.

And also, the most important thing when adding a "new" sun is the make sure your shadows match the position of the sun. I've seen so many examples of shadows in the wrong direction and the eye picks up on that in an instant.

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