Feels a bit fuzzy on the top of the button.

Lovely! Is there a reason the shadow is heavier on the right?
I dribbble'd this last night but wanted to wait for my client to see it before I posted it so I'm dribbbling again.
@Chris, you're so right. Thanks for pointing that out.
@Dan - just trying out different types of shadows. I usually default to something more balanced. If it doesn't work, it doesn't work :-) I'm all for the feedback.
I agree with Chris, but have you tried bringing down the vibrancy of the white stroke at the bottom? It might even out the button a bit more. Other than that I love it!
I like this, the only thing I can think of is to watch your lighting. From the way the shadow falls, it appears as though the lighting is coming from the top right. However, the gradation on the button itself suggests light coming from directly above the button.
You'll also need to use a gradation on the stroke on the bottom if you do choose to move the lighting to the right to match the shadow.
Hope that helps!
Pat, you rock! I felt like something was off with the direction of the lighting and was trying to figure it out. Thanks for the enlightment (no pun intended).
The magnifying glass doesn't feel perfectly centered ... My eyes could be betraying me though. I'm not a big fan of the shadow weighted to the right ... I think it would work just fine if it were in the middle.
And finally, I'm not sure a white stroke is necessary here :)
Thanks Bryan. I appreciate your feedback.
love the perspective! lookin' hot as usual, Gedy! lol @obsessedwithgotham - makes two of us :)
I so agree with all of you who gave me suggestions. Here's the 'fixed' version. Still not 100% happy.
Also, on my MBP, this looks way different than it does on my iMac. :-/ #displaycalibrationFAIL
I love the revised version much better. I think it looks great! One other suggestion, have you tried lowering the opacity of the shadow a but more?
And, I know what you mean. I use a PC at work (hate. it.) and my beautiful iMac at home. When I compare my designs, the quality is much higher on my iMac.
@Skylar, Thanks. I have tried lowering the opacity on the shadow and it just feels like it doesn't stand out enough. Gahhh!
*Ignore my tantrum.
haha no worries. I think the revised version looks amazing!
That looks a lot better.
Hmm, I wonder if I understand this correctly – is the whole thing a button, or a text field and a button? If the latter, there’s something uneasy about putting drop shadow on text fields in my opinion. Google did this for their homepage and search and I loathe it – I keep clicking and thinking it’s a button. :)
@Peter, this is not a text field. It's a button. First time I heard that it looks like a text field. :-)
Actually, I can see Peter's point, just reverse the gradient and BOOM - it's a text field.
I think the revised version looks gorgeous. Less like it's standing up and more like a button.
Maybe play off the shadows between the page sections, and try a bottom and right shadow on the button? (Just suggesting as you mentioned you're not 100% happy with it.)
@Chris, I guess I could see that.
@Krystyn, great suggestion. Thanks!
I love everything about the button apart from the white stroke, maybe it's just me. Still gorgeous though, nice one Gedy!
Thanks Kyle. Did you see the 'fixed' version? Which one do you prefer? http://drp.ly/1h8g4C
Woah, that is really nice but as I said before, I'm still not warming up to the white stroke. I just don't think the white stroke suits that much of a elaborate (? Couldn't find the words) shadow but if the stroke was darker it suit the shadow more.
I prefer the 'fixed' version.
Fixed verison looks super sweet! Very clickable ;)
