I really like this image, but CC all commented on noise. One person commented "I wish it were a true silhouette." I gave it another go, but am not sure if it is any better. Here is a SOOC, my original edit and a new edit. Please help me out!

I like your new edit, but I gotta say ... I really like the crop in the SOCC. It would make a great example for our 'negative space' assignment. And I think it creates a real dramatic effect.
With that said, I think your new edit looks really good.
I have nothing to add about the editing but I just had to say that I really like the shot!!

I'm really digging the SOOC too. I think you captured a great moment.

I too REALLY love the SOOC even though he is almost centered....I do think the new edit looks much less noisy now though, so good work
I'm assuming that the reason Amber said it wasn't a "true silhouette" was that you can see a bit of detail of the clothes on his arm/body (which I saw on my home laptop which is extra-bright, but not here at work).....or maybe because he is not turned completely sideways?

Right Amy...I said it wasn't a true silouhette because it looks gray on my computer, with all the detail of his hat and back, I see his ear, etc...instead of black like a silouhette should look.
New edit is better in all aspects.
