    Well... Not the second one. It looks like a Fuchsia... Not an orchid.

    Personally I like the first one the best but just wanted to get an opinion from everyone else.

    Font of third variant looks better for me, but flower in this logo definitely is not related to the orchid world.

    It looks good, but “O” does not recognizable.

    I would choose this one wholeheartedly, especially if the flower could be removed.

    Stylized images of an orchid is easy if you aren't dealing with orchid people. To an orchid person, it is obvious that this graphic was done with someone with little or no understanding of orchids and doesn't suggest a base of knowledge. For me, just text works the best.

    Unfortunately, the first one reminds me of a Hawaiian grower's logo. I don't remember which one though.

    Of the three I prefer the second, and I think the flower would look better with the stamen-looking things removed as these are a pretty obvious anatomical clue that it's not an orchid. Without those, it visually reads more like a vaguely Cattleya-ish flower.

    I also tend not to like script fonts and the second is the least script-like.

    Remove the stamen part of the second one and that is my vote.

    Second one, minus the flower, or minus the stamens, or with a more orchid-shaped flower or with no flower at all :D\

    Without the stamens it will look like an upside down daffodil.

    Well, yah'll beat me to the punch. That was my favorite too. :)

    Thanks for humoring all of us Brent. We appreciate being able to shape "our" forum -- and we know we are all a little orchid bonkers. :)
