Frost and leaves are both good examples of this, so put them together and you get a pretty nice glowing photo. Compare with a shot of the same leaf from the other side, which I think is boring:

Anything with a fuzzy edge can benefit from some backlighting. Especially furry animals (or furry humans):

I know that little kitty cat!

That's an absolutely beautiful photograph of a leaf. Your pictures make me see things I've never noticed before :)
