This is pretty much exactly how I feel. The shadows were there, we just didn't see them. Either cause JKR didn't take the trouble to write out a shadow for each and every spell, or some of the shadows were so slight that Harry didn't notice them and therefore we wouldn't know about them (since we see everything from Harry's POV). What would the shadow be for the Imperious Curse? We don't see that one. But we know the spell was done. There was no one killed when the curse was performed on Harry, so no shadow of a person appeared. Maybe a "wooshing" sound came out the wand, much like the screaming sounds that represented crucio, and there was just so much going on that Harry didn't hear it. Or maybe green light did, but there was so much other light that Harry didn't notice it. Just because it wasn't directly "spelled out" for us in the book, doesn't mean it didn't happen.

I think Mum's got a second cousin who's an accountant, but we never talk about him.

Why does a loving God allow poverty to exist in the world when He could do something about it? What if He asked the same question of you?

Re: Missing Shadow?

I suppose another way of looking at this - JKR actually recorded certain spell activity for a reason.
Saying you are right here - perhaps there is a link that represents why certain objects 'shadowed' and yet others were negated?
I understand that there are a few notable errors in that chapter - many of which were addressed in later revisons - but rather than a remise JKR - I would like to think there is a link between what she showed and what she choose to leave out - perhaps that is a clue in itself?
'It's all my fault, all my fault'
'Please make it stop, I know I did wrong, oh, please make it stop and i'll never, never again..'
'Don't hurt them, don't hurt then, please, please, it's my fault, hurt me instead ...'
'Please, please, please, no ... not that, not that, I'll do anything ...'
