French term or phrase: plan
"...cette vue de Paris est composée d’une succession de plans..."

I know exactly what that is i.e. foreground, background, etc., but as it happens in our job, I have been stuck with that for half an hour, and I should know since my eldest son is a fashion photographer...! I have been thinking of "layers", but am quite sure it's wrong... HELP ! Thanks...

Re "layers", that would be used if the picture was built up from a number of superimposed images, possibly of varying degrees of transparency. However, the "layers" would relate to the technical way the image was produced rather than to the viewer's perception of the finished image, which is how I read the question.

@Asker, that's generally a good sign that a break and perhaps a glass of wine is required.

Notes to answerer
Asker: Thank you both. Must admit I am still confused because I called 3 pros - 2 in the photography industry and a friend film editor, and its 50/50 between "planes" and "layers"... The good news is that, in 1850, it could not have been "aero"-planes!!! Do you find it as frustrating as I do in this job when you know exactly what it means, but remain stuck when it comes to find the appropriate word in the other language...? :-)
