I have now added a further column to the classification table of Cast Shadows, that of ‘Distance to Background‘. To explain this new class I am using the terms Proximate and Approximate.
Proximate identifies the position of the object as on the background.
Approximate identifies the position of the object as near but not touching.
Below is the updated table for Cast shadows (always assuming the object is opaque) and the total number of possible combinations (280)
|Light type||Length||Edge||Shading||Colour||Distance to background|
