I feel warmth and closeness to the subject. There is an emphasis on the face which produces a more intimate ambience.

I really notice the distortion caused by the wide-angle lense. I feel alienated from Curious Young Person almost as if she were pressing her face against a window and mugging at me. Don't you make monkey-shines at me young lady!

I feel neutral about the character in this frame. I can't tell whether this shot is meant to imitate a 'normal' lens or a 'moderate telephoto' lens, but the character's featrures are no longer distorted. A big smile would make me feel warmly toward her.

Wide Angle
The first image appears very close (may be even too close for comfort, which may make the person look intimidating) while the second one is at a comfortable distance. The first image also seems to have a bigger smile as compared to the second. This bigger smile in a way also conveys more curiosity than the second frame which has a relatively indifferent expression.
·

The shoulders of the first frame seem narrower than those of the second frame(almost as if the entire frame were compressed). This gives the feeling that the person is being viewed from a slightly higher level than the eye-level of the young person. This adds to the feeling of curiosity.

The second is more away, kind of cold, like she's thinking or isn't in a conversation.

Wide Angle
The girl looks both curious and excited for something. Whom ever being stared like this would feel like at the center stage for having something wanted by the girl. At one point this shot would set some kind of pressure to viewers - feeling little bit of uneasy/tense perhaps.

Unlike the first shot, this one is more neutral and calm. Her facial profile is more warmth. No tension created by the shot/lenses, I am feeling at ease.

Wide Angle
The thing is that the first picture makes me feel, while the second one is very empty to me. In the first image the person's face is refracted to seem closer to the screen and to the eye. This things offers closure to the image.It may seem strange, but the face looks kinda freaky!

The second image is purely neutral to me. I cannot feel a thing coming from that image. The lenses went to neutral I think.

Wide Angle
The wide angle shot gives a comical point of view .. the subject seems to be closer and distorted whereas in a telephoto shot the subject looks a lot like in normal life , a normal human eye perception it gives a sense of reality.

The second picture is a little more mundane and boring than the first one. I'm not sure what exactly the mood is, but the first one in my opinion is more positive than the second one.
