White Ear Parma in Botany Bay sponge garden. The three elements in this photo are created by finding a photogenic sponge garden with a resident White Ear Parma, picking the best direction to shoot from within its territory and trying to shoot slightly upwards to get a pleasing blue background. I took test shots to get the exposures correct then waited for the territorial fish to swim into a good position. This process takes time and patience but it is worth it. You actually build the photo using three elements to construct the final picture.
