I like the first one the most. You got some nice clouds. Number three is my second choice, then number two.

I'd pick #1 because the others don't have enough sky. But since this is a gift for your wife, which one does she prefer?

Lol, she can't decide. Same lighting but different angles and FL. Only had one shot at it, do to time. I like all three, but can only pick one.

The first one, because of the sky.

#1... But you should try some lens correction to straighten the curved horizon

Just to be different, I prefer #2. I like that the crop is zoomed in a bit closer which emphasizes the river (although the foreground rocks in #1 are great as well); the detail in the water looks sharper (see ripples upper right of "U"). It would also be an easy job to put in the sky from #1 and, as was already suggested, some lens correction. Maybe brighten up the shadows on the cliff faces a bit as well. I think any of them would look good on your wall.

Good point Jim, I did lens correction to the one I sent in. Here's the one we picked and should be here next week. Thanks all.

I would vote for #1 with a few corrections. Nice work. How close to the edge were you? I often see this captured with the lover part of the river partially cut off by rocks.

Yes, I can just imagine. My wife got hysterical when I got too close to the edge at Deadhorse Point. Well worth the effort. Great image. Were you standing with a tripod or lying fairly flat?

I scooted on my butt to the edge and put the tripod on a small rock platform below me. The shots I wanted was sunrise/sunset but it was too overcast.
