Excellent use of complimentary colours, but I'm not sure I understand the "oops" factor...

Cool idea. Lighting is harsh.

I'm not sure how this fits Oops! I do like the choice of colors and the arrangment of the items, but next you should use a fill light off to the side to kill the shadows, the lighting here is very harsh.

Hmmm, I'm not sure what your thoughts were when making this photo. I just don't see what you did. Sorry. The flash seems a bit bright and washes out the money.

I like the composition and the mix of colors. Your lighting is a bit harsh. Some softer light/flash setting would have helped this, or maybe a darker background.

The flash is really harsh - I like the idea though.

On-board flash rendered this very harsh and the shadows hurt overall.
Not sure I get the oops relationship either. (5)

Your image is rather harshly lit and very bright. I assume you are using the onboard flash of your camera, which rarely gives good results indoors. I know all about having to "make do" with what you have, so some suggestions might be to back up from your subject and allow your zoom to move closer, move the subject away from the background more, and use as much natural light as you can (or available room light if that's what you have to work with.

I'm guessing that the concept of your shot is that the tree is a money tree and is growing $20 bills which are going into the purse for the "payday." Nice idea, but the execution is not clear. Perhaps shooting the same shot vertically, with the money falling from the branches into the open purse, might help illustrate it better.

Good luck and I hope you continue to enter challenges. It takes a lot of practice, patience, and thick skin, but you will learn a lot and have fun in the process. :)
