Shadows

Shadows help 'lift' parts of an image and give it a 3D feel. SVG supports filter effects that let you create drop shadows, so here is a bit of London rendered with a shadow (at about 10am :-) ).

And here's the same bit without the shadow...

This was shown at SoTM. Robert (Jamie) Munro suggested we might use it more selectively under bridges. Nice!

Batik was used to render the svg as Inkscape doesn't support filter effects properly yet.
