It can also be thought of as the organization of the elements of art according to the principles of art.

The term composition means ‘putting together,’ and can apply to any work of art, from music to writing to photography, that is arranged or put together using conscious thought.

In graphic design and desktop publishing, composition is commonly referred to as page layout.” Wikipedia
