The entire “artwork” is based on cutting and pasting stock photos from the same CD and that too from an “international” agency.

Key question, How difficult is it to actually take a photo of a veiled woman in the GCC?

Stock photography consists of existing photographs that can be licensed for specific uses. Publishers, advertising agencies, graphic artists, and others use stock photography to fulfill the needs of their creative assignments.

A customer who uses stock photography instead of hiring a photographer can save time and money, but can also sacrifice creative control. – Wikipedia

  1. Mr. Alasfahani,
    I have great regard for your work and critiquing but am afraid the same would apply to the pictures of a man too!
