My personal favourite is the design by blackhobos too. That is if it spells 'academy' in stead of 'acadamy'. 'Acadamy' would sound like an akadama-distributor :)

My arguments for this preference :
-it is simple; it is chaotic nor overloaded
-the overall composition is balanced
-it does what a good logo should do : condense essential information -both formal as in atmosphere- in a synoptic view
-the style choice of both fonts and image (tree) are consistent, go well together
-the design looks distinguished and professional
-the design looks as if it always existed and was not 'made'
-one can easily remember the logo even when not confronted with it visually; still 'see it with closed eyes'
-style choices are contemporary
-it will look as good very small as on a large banner
-the tree abstraction allows variations in color and shape if wanted

I am a master in arts and i do bonsai. So i estimated my opinion might be worth about two cents :)

If you want to use the logo for letterheads, web sites etc. it should be clean and easy to relate to. I do like most of your trees, but putting one of them as a logo (in colour) makes the logo looking nervous and not very professional. Bryan, Max, Blackhobos and a few others seem to be professionals or at least very distingushed amateurs and understand the importance and message of a logo. I remember having seen one sent in from South America (Antonio), it blew me away. Crisp, clean, stylish, carries the message, all you want. Have fun in selecting, I was thinking of sending in one myself but you do have enough of a choice already, I presume.

Cheers
