Nice! Looks good, There's a little color clipping on the bubble, but that might be cause it's on the internet.

Thanks. Partly compression and partly that I hadn't spent much time working the image yet, but felt it was something that would fit the theme.

How did you get the background so rich in colour? Usually when you use gels on a white background, they wash out and look like pastel colours.

I must be doing something wrong!

If I remember correctly, it's a mix of doubling up/mixing the gels and powering down the lights. The less light you put through gels the more saturated and rich the colors tend to be.
