Shadow is creating because the light source has blocked them. Shadows in an image can inform information about the object's shape, orientation and information about the light source. Shadows degrade the quality of images and affect the information thus the correct image interpretation it is important to detect a shadow. Thus, Shadow detection in real scene images is a challenging but interesting area. Shadow detection is useful many applications like object recognition, scene interpretation and segmentation etc. Many algorithms and methods have been developed for different environmental circumstances to detect a shadow from the images. This paper reviews on some methods to detect shadows. This paper is aimed to provide a survey on various methods of shadow detection with their comparative study and disadvantages and advantages.
