I suspect that the screener was likely thinking that an image like this has the OPPOSITE problem to "distracting shadow." It means he thinks the uneven lighting is not pleasing to the eye and I'd...

If you look at the layout of the home page, clearly, Admin has been doing a little facelift. The PoTW now has a MUCH more prominent presence. I suspect the map function will be fixed shortly.
