    Like other people I fail to see the 2001 connection in it, although it is a fine photo.

    2001: A Space Odyssey is one of the great cinema masterpieces. It was shot on 65mm film stock in Super Panavision 70 format. That is, spherical lenses (not anamorphic) on 65 mm film stock in an aspect ratio of 2.20:1 (which is very close to sqrt(5) : 1, an absolutely beautiful ratio which has been used in everything from architecture to Japanese gardens for millennia). The film was released in several formats for projection, but the kick-ass 70mm print is the one to watch. If you ever get a chance to see the 70mm print projected, just do it. It's absolutely jaw-dropping.

    Turns out that there were less than 20 pictures made with these amazing Panavision cameras, and Panavision got out of this particular business around 1983 IIRC. Too bad. The results are spectacular.

    As to your image, it's good to see people being inspired by the masters. The team of Stanley Kubrick and Geoffrey Unsworth (cinematography) should inspire us all. Masters of light, shadow, and framing, and visual story telling skills that seem to be heading for extinction these days. So, good on ya.

    Kubrick (and Unsworth) were really good at interesting angles and viewpoints, creating a sort of ambience of something hidden beneath. It is inspiring to watch, yet on some level it is disturbing and slightly disorienting. I think the OP is on his way towards that feeling in his photograph.

    Having recently re-watched 2001, I can see the connection. The styling of the bench and wall seen in this image very much remind me of the furniture style that is found in the space station visited in the film.
