Michael and Alain give the answer.

You will see the effect if you put two versions side by side, one with, 
one without the use of backside illumination (used indeed with a 
semi-transparant texture): without it, the aspect will be much more dull.

In my image, it it just the "shininess" of the curtain parts in sunlight 
that is increased making the whole more attractive but also more natural 
imo.
