I have one of those fish eye type lenses that you put on the end of any other lens, and you get the corner darkness and warp. I like the imperfections here, or at least generally perceived imperfections, and see them as a source of strength; the lens dust, the tilt, noise, grain and grayed-out tones- they all work together to create a real moment, and staged moment, echoing theme-

Kind of far away to really see anything

Wide angle doesn't work for me here as subject to small in the scene. Busy background.

The shot is very distracting to me. In my opinion, the BW doesn't work well here. Its hard to pick out many of the details here. I do like the vignette. Is that the lens hood?
