I smell a debate! (or not...)
Brie's is the most photorealistic (which makes sense since that's what she was aiming for), Jon's is the most artistic (No idea if that was your intention, but that's how I feel about it. Looks almost antiqued.), mass's is the most vibrant (which seems to be his style - nothing particularly wrong with that).
I wouldn't say mass's version is overexposed at all. It's very saturated which makes it look very bright, but nothing is blown out or even close to being blown out. And high saturation seems to be what mass likes, so I think he pulled it off well.
Personally, I'm also a photorealism person. True exposure and, more importantly, true color are what I look for in a "wow" picture. I think both can be extremely difficult to achieve, however, given the circumstances. >.>
EDIT: I want a Sypder soo bad, but I think it'd be a waste of money on my laptop's screen. I need to buy a monitor that I use for image processing and get a Spyder for that.
EDITEDIT: I should note that it's a great picture to begin with, Devon. XD That's a lotta prolifera. ;p

Oh I didnt mean there was anything WRONG with travis' photo.. That is indeed his style.. I was just giving my opinion as well.. If say, I took that photo.. I wouldnt use it or upload it, because to me, that's an unusably overexposed photo. lol. But like I said, I tend to aim for dark, contrasty images, which is prolly obvious..

That IS a perfect shot, Kula! Nice!!
Hehehehe. I like all of the edits. The only problem with all of the photos, including mine, is the distracting stem in the background. @Kyle: I agree with you, but I also like artistic photos too. Sometimes when I'm really bored, I'll just completely screw up a photo and make it look completely different.
I wish i had a style of photography that made me stand out like you peeps..
