Faces: woman with sunglasses

I was at a festival over Thanksgiving weekend. The theme was "Dickens Day." I tried photographing some faces in the crowd. Some are in Victorian garb, others in street clothes.

I believe this woman was smiling at her young daughter who was admiring Christmas goods on a table. This is all in the original photo - I attempted to convert the background to a sketch appearance to make it less distracting (with only moderate success, I fear).

SONY SLT-A77V 1/80 second F/13.0 ISO 800 157 mm (35mm equiv.)

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at My-Expressions.com. It is gone now.

Nice portrait and an interesting effect. I had thought the background was a hoarding

I like your conversion of the background. I'd say it is more than a modest success. It doesn't distract from the main subject. Well done.
