Putting any lens distrotion aside, something doesn't feel right with this cabin. First the centre overhead bins change height and it's not a gradual change but a sudden height change that looks wrong. Then there's the spacing between the centre and outer bins with that weird height change to deal with. Sorry Airbus, you may have gotten rid of the 'banana boat fuselage' but this attempt is sad and looks 'pieced together as an afterthought'. You need to streamline the interior to be smooth. Boeing has clearly beat Airbus in that interior design contest.

Regarding the first comment. The height change around the overhead bin area is due to the fact that this is where the overhead crew rest compartment is located. You'll notice that there are not actually any overhead bins here. The are just designed in for continuity.

Based on the comment about the overhead crew rest area, that makes Airbus seem even worse at designing a proper cabin. No centre overhead bins it would appear upon closer inspection for at least the last 6 rows which makes 18 seats looking for storage space. That's pretty bad design not to mention the rear of the cabin just looks like a mishmash of bits and pieces thrown together.

The 787 does not have center overhead bins at this position either because of the crew rest area. Besides, crew rest area onboard the A350 provides a unique standing area, and that's why there is a sudden change in ceiling height.
