Ohhh I like this thread thanks chalk5 :D
With that said, my favorite jumps would be any quad specially Yuzu's 4T and Javi's 4S. I don't know how they do it so effortlessly...
I love lutzes too especially Yuna's because she does them perfectly and consistently :D Loops look pretty too as long as it's kept in a straight line.

To do? Double loop and axel.
To see done? 3L-3T combo textbook executed. Or just 3Lz, I agree with jkun (totally agree with this).
2A's from interesting entries such as IB's or spread eagles.
3A for men with textbook positions.

Axel or Toe Loop
When it comes to my favorite jumps, it depend on who's executing them:

As for 3-Flips and Lutzes, Yuna has those down to a science. Especially her Flip entrance and exits are to die for.
Caro does all her jumps quite lovely with beautiful edges.
Miki bless her heart execute her jumps in a very ugly fashion. She can rotate them, but it never looks pretty.
I really, really, really wish Kanako gets rid of her mule kick if she continues competing. Aside from that flaw, I love her overall techniques.
I hate salchow jumps from anyone/everyone. It's just an ugly jumps to me.
After how beautiful Gracie executed her jumps at Sochi (minus the fall on her flip), I hope she brings her best this upcoming season. Because this girl can do beautiful jumps when she does her best.
Caro executes beautiful 2a, along with Yuna. But poor Mao with her 2axel at times. She generally execute them very well, but on a few occasions, due to her ability to execute 3axels, she seems to have to enter her 2a's with a slow pace as not to over-rotate them. that was evident during the 2011-12 GP season when she completely took out her 3a and replaced them with a 2a. She almost did a 3a when she was going for a 2a during her NHK SP. But I love hers the most after Caro's.
Yuzuru and Hans 3a's are to die for.
Chan has beautiful jumps minus his 3a's.
Oda has the best knee bend when it comes to landing his jumps.
I'll add some more later.
