I think so, too.  Under these thoughts I like the following logos best:

filip-1.jpg    idsfa-3.jpg    sfax-3.jpg     villate-1.jpg
grumbel-1.gif  ivana-0.gif    tomi-0.gif     villate-2.jpg
idsfa-0.jpg    japp-3.gif     villate-0.gif

I don't want to prefer a special one of them, but I like the ideas
and the realisation of these ideas.  OK, I prefer the orca idea but
the other ones could fit my expectations to a logo (possibly after
some overwork).

Kind regards
