I think I know why you added shadows: they increase the 3D look and ease 
the transition from the current full 3D theme to a flatten one.
And I also know what is wrong with the shadows: light is coming from 
top, objects have a vertical shape and the shadow is projected in a 
horizontal plane. But I got the idea and like it.

Yup, the Fedora logo can go, we have enough symbols: f, infinity and bubble.

Now if you said the word "echo" in this context... we will introduce the 
Echo theme for icons, I wonder about having and the wallpaper also about 
an echo but I don't know yet how. Maybe with a single graphic element 
and a lot of reflexions?
