An image which demands further inspection...

I knew it was yours from the thumbnail. Wonderful processing work, the combination of the round shapes and the sharper edges is a delight to look at.
In the silence lie all the answers.

one advantage i see from the earlier one is that it is more defined.. overall, it loses the earlier meaning somewhat, and presents a different take altogether.. that was silence in a hostile environment struggling to hold it's fort.. the noise was prominent, the whole form as presented depicted it was as though running through a chaos and it had barely a chance to survive there..
let us make the journey again, for your images are small, small journeys..
1. it has a stronger personality now, shown by its strong body and somewhat imperturbable look.. the noise even looks harmonious and not so troubling.. it has been wounded all along, it has scars but those lurk on the skin, not so deep..
overall, silence is a void, and a matter of reference too.. it is understood only when it is hurt by a noise.. those noises leave imprint on it.. perhaps not lasting, fading..
silence is here to stay, silence is here to survive..
2. it has got a bit of a protective armor.. a survival technique.. apparently it looks like a bit of noise itself on the skin, and its interaction with the noise is harmonious.. the noise lets it go always, tricked..
3. Actually not the idea of silence but how it encumbers the personalities.. and the pts 1 and 2 are two different personalities..

a lot and lot more can be interpreted through the image.. the interpretation one's own matter of choice..
another brilliant image.. and how the two images are so different even as belonging to a single piece is amazing..

When we listen to the silent world we hear our inner self crackle and continue to live.

The images buzzes with life and movement.
