Well, the fail tou are incurring of is using gradients...
Here is my sugestion:
1.- Begin with a layer filled in black as base
2.- Put over it an empty layer, using the airbrush tool, begin to create the center of the "lens flare",begin with a large brush size and a smaller presion, now tou must going changing the brush size to smaller ones with more presure...
3.- Now you have the "halo" (i don´t now if this is the appropiate word)
4.- Create other new layer over, and with the airbrush trace a straight line that cross the "haze" in the layer down...
5.- Well the secret now: Create a "layer mask" and with the airbrush (recommended smaller pression) begin to work in the ends of the line, to make it transparents in the way you want...

But i think that is a little dificult to use...
