    Some colors can be very difficult to get right but I would say you did a good job, very nice color combination!

    It looks great ; a tip I picked up here is to use a polarising filter - the rotary kind - to get truer colours. I'm not sure whether it works, but worth a try I think. I usually fiddle about with photoshop , especially using the multiply and then fade buttons , although after an hour or two of frustration I often come to the conclusion that if I can't get somewhere close with just flash and white reflector, I never will with photoshop.
