Sailboat at Sheperd’s Park in HDR – Stuart, Florida

Mar 5, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

Sheperd’s Park is a really neat little park located in Stuart, Florida next to the Roosevelt bridge. I’ve been to this park once before and decided to stop by on my way back home from Port St. Lucie after a photo shoot with a couple of friends. There wasn’t many interesting subjects to shoot that day but after walking around for a few minutes I ran into this little sailboat. It was quite windy that day so I had to do a lot of blending and Photoshop work to remove ghosting. Eventually I ended up with this little work of art.
