First I cleaned up the canvas with the healing and clone brushes,
Then I thought it was kinda boring after I got rid of the balls, so I stole some from this photo of 1/5th of a second later and put it on top.
I tried to sprinkle in a few orbs in a somewhat random fashion. I always have a problem with authentic randomness.
Then I fixed the levels for a brighter background.
