Curved shadows in Photoshop

I agree with Lèse that there would also appear to be a slight outer glow or secondary shadow applied to the frame in your posted image.

Doesn't really make the world of difference, but what I would do in this case with the wrap is just click and drag from the middle between the 2 inner dots at the bottom and drag upwards. – Joonas Feb 17 '12 at 7:12
If you just expanded it sideways and lowered it slightly when you warped it, it'd look the same as the OP's image. – naught101 Aug 8 '12 at 3:58

It's hard to tell from that image, but looking at the original PDF, it looks like it's just 2 shadow layers (black layers set to multiply with a small amount of blur to it) that have been transformed using warp to pull the 2 corners down.

One of the shadow layers is slightly wider, the other is narrower, but the bottom corners have been pulled down further. This gives it the effect of multiple light sources and causes the corners to look slightly more blurred than the center.
