I see the big difference between 17mm and 25mm. At 17mm and shorter, you feel close to the subject. I actually like that close feel for a lot of head shots, especially of young kids with their flawless complexions and especially when there's something interesting in the background.

Good point! There are so many factors that can come into play as we are setting up the composition.
