Central Park, Sunday... about as close to silence as you can get in NYC.

The lake was frozen over; the birds were having fun walking on it.

Wonderful shot, Carol! The blue sky is such a great contrast to the starkness of the frozen lake and the bare trees. Great detail in the foreground too. Keep up the great work! I haven't taken a picture all month...need to get back out there!

... "there's no one here but us chickens" ...
Great scene - I wonder if a non-centred composition would be stronger?

I really like this shot. It does indeed look like a quiet place in the city and suits this challenge well.

A very appealing image but like so many others in this challenge I am struggling to feel the silence. Peace and tranquility maybe in the heart of a city but this image does not speak to me of silence for the simple reason that cities are noisy places. Still it scores well for its composition.

This definately conveys "silence" :) The only thing I might change is not having the person so centered in the shot. I would have had him on the right hand side of the photo, since he is looking toward the left. Good work.

Pretty skyline. Good shot for this challenge. Lonely feel, moody posture of the man.
