Figure 1: Shower shapes and triple Gaussian fits for photons from eta-meson
sorted by different conditions of EEMC 1st and 2nd pre-shower layers.
Note: All shapes have been normalized at peak to unity

Shower shapes comparison between different data sets:
Some observations:
Shapes for gammas from eta-meson decay
are in a good agreement with those from MC gamma-jet sample
(compare red squares with blue triangle in Fig. 2 and 3).
MC gamma-jet shapes obtained by running a full gamma-jet reconstruction algorithm,
and this agreement indicates that we are able to reconstruct gamma shapes
which we put in with data-driven shower shape library.
MC gamma-jet shapes match pp2006 data shapes
for pre1=0 condition, where we expect to be very efficient in background rejection
(compare red squares with black circles in upper plots of Fig. 2 and 3).
This indicates that we are able to reproduce EEMC SMD of direct photons with data-driven Monte-Carlo.
There is no match between Monte-Carlo QCD background jets and pp2006 data
for the case when both pre-shower layer fired (pre1>0 and pre2>0).
(compare green triangles with black circes in bottom right plots of Fig.2 and 3).
This is the region where we know background dominates our gamma-jet candidates.
This shows that we still do not reproduce SMD response for our background events
in our data-driven Monte-Carlo simulations
(note, that in Monte-Carlo we replace SMD response with real shapes for all background photons
the same way we do it for direct gammas).
Figure 2: Shower shapes comparison between different data sets.
Shapes for gamma-jet candidates obtained with the same gamma-jet reconstruction algorithm
for three different data samples (pp2006, gamma-jet and QCD jets MC).
pt cuts of 7GeV for the gamma and of 5 GeV for the away side jet have been applied.
Figure 3:Same as Fig. 2, but with no cuts on gamma and jet pt.
All shapes are similar to those in Fig. 2 with an additional pt cuts.
Note, that blue triangles are the same as in Fig. 2.
