A minute later or a minute sooner might have made for a better shot to fit the challenge description. But I do like the shot.

Nice picture, wish it were actually a shot of the oops. Great color and contrast.

Without your title explanation, I wouldn't view this as an oops image. I do like the reflection of the sail in the water.

haha the title elaborates the photo. Stunning composion, and dof, and brillant collor, but i must give 6 instead of 7 because it doesn't really do justice to the "opps" part of the contest... maybe a capture of the fall would be more dramatic and IMO, get a higher score, esp. with all the splashing water and the interesting diagnals a flailing sailor would create.

Isn't he just pulling up the sail?

Nice picture

The picture doesn't seem to tell the story of "oops" on its own... the title leaves me to come up with what the "oops" might have been. A great opportunity for some action shots here, with water flying, awkward body positions... I can see it! But this particular picture doesn't show it to me. You've got some great colors and reflections too. - 5

Why not take a picture of the oops then?

I like this image and it fits well here in this challenge....................

Certainly, showing the "oops" would have been far more effective. Just wait a few minutes.

Clean image here.
Composition is weak regarding the challenge though. Nothing here says oops on it's own and without the title, wouldn't meet the challenge. (5)

I have a soft spot for the water shots. I do love the reflection of the sail off of the water

Too many distracting elements for my eye. It is only my fault that I do not see the upcoming "oops".
