One of the benefits of the smartphone era is that people are now more used and more tolerant of perspective distortion - in fact, it's associated with the informality and fun.

I think you've used the 28 to very good effect in getting natural and appropriate shots for this event.

I fully agree on the main message and the impact of phone camera angle of view on viewer expectations But I believe we are wrong talking about perspective "distortion". This is exclusively a question of perception induced by habit. There is no "distortion" from that point of view, just a given perspective.
