In other words, without the shadow, there is no extra aid it defining the direction of light. So how is the user going to define it? I'd think they use the fact that most UI is top-left lighting, such as their OS's UI. If you go against that you'll need to make it pretty clear that you are. You'll need something extra. Thanks for making that clear to me. ;)

When you add a shadow to the equation it's easier to determine what it is (embossed or beveled). However, when the shadow conflicts with the lighting on the actual button (such as the case with the first button) it looks odd; why is it darker at the top when the shadow is cast on the bottom? The shadow does help determine the direction of light when combined with the gradient, lick with the second button; darker at the top, lighter on bottom, but shadow cast on top (all the elements play well with each other). But what if you didn't have the shadow? You've lost that extra dimension.
