    Michael,

    Using a wide angle lens close to the subject and particularly when the image extends from the lower edge of the frame does basically include or allows the the viewer to enter and "travel" through the scene- it is certainly more intimate. This is particularly effective when the actual image is large. For my own work this is particularly noticed and effective when the image size reaches (or larger than) 20" x 30" from 35mm transparencies and 24" x 30" from 4" x 5" transparencies. When the image is printed to this size, in many instances, the image is approximating the size and scope of the scene as it was photographed.
