In photography, composition refers to the arrangement of the elements in the picture (composition can both refer to the finished photograph and be used as a verb to describe the act of positioning oneself and the photograph's subject in a specific manner). When I was talking to a friend in German I wanted to tell him I liked the composition of one of his photographs, but I wasn't sure what word to use.
The direct translation (false friend?) Komposition doesn't have the same meaning in German. The only word I came up with was Bildaufbau, but that still feels wrong (in a way that it doesn't mean the same as the english word). Is there a better translation for composition that can be used in this context?
