Example:

When you frame the picture between the long edges (like OP) there is a noticable difference in background blur depending on what aspect ratio you use.

Both pictures below are framed between the bottom of the farting pillow and white mark on monitor with focus being on the power button.

25mm f2 - framed with 3:2

25mm f2 - framed with 4:3
