when I read the title,I expected to see pictures of korean or chinese men and women working in a sort of sweat shop behind sewing machines and I was eager to see that..any possibility you could get us some pictures of those?I heard a lot of stories about the situations in which these people work and live and I have an image in my mind that I wanted to see if its real..I am hoping that since you were already there you took some more pictures?

Wow, loved the first on! the combination of texture, color and shape are amazing. But is the sky natural or did you alter it on photoshop ?

salam, sorry i didnt get picture of that sort, the purpose of the photos were for an article that speaks positively of the QIZ,
Jameed ma3ak ha2,
promises i never use adobe unless i state so, but i use color correction software for correction of Hue Saturation and contrast. (meaning i dont mess around with the picture itself)

jameed, because many of those that work in the QIZ's are not jordanians.

mostly indians, filapinos, siri lanki

Really Sabri?i thought the majority of the workers there were asian/far eastern..thanks for the info..but someone described a clothes factory for me and the top floor where thy sleep on cardboards with only minimal seperation in between them like a fridge carton they found in the road ,a sink in the end of the hall where they all shave and wash up and a stove in the other end where they cook..he also talked about some shaving th eother one's head right in the middle and cracking buildings from all that extra weight of machines and people..I was very annoyed to hear that..he made me feel like it's some sort of really poor ghetto..any ideas on how true is that?To be fair,I once visited a Jeans factory in sahab ,but that was a long time ago before QIZ and it was nothing like that..(Jameed that's why i menioned the koreans)
