"Guardian Angel"
   

(begonia)

'Guardian Angel'
    (begonia)
 

The shape and lighting on this Begonia strongly suggested an angel to me, and the picture was composed to maximize that effect. The intense backlighting reveals the flower's texture, and emphasizes the shapes in the scene more than the colors. Use of a large aperture breaks up the background into out of focus pastels, drawing attention back to the flower.
