    I would think that if they are on the same surface, the two types of shadows should be the same value by default. However, the reflective light from the surroundings will alter that.

    Too many factors play into this to give any kind of definitive answer. It depends. Local value of bopth the object casting the shadow and the object/plane onto which the shadow is cast(in terms of halfway to black etc.), reflected light and so on all play a role. One could be darker than the other, they could be the same value... there is really no answer to your question.

    It depends on ambient light, other factors, etc.
