That looks great and the photo is stunning :) .

I don't know if this might be useful to you but it made me think about a method I used to use for transferring printed images to canvas and even to make lino cuts for printing when I was an art student.

Acrylic medium which is the base of acrylic paint (get it from an art shop) painted onto the print will dissolve the ink. You can then apply pressure with a press, roller or just by rubbing hard with your fingernail on something waterproof you put over the image to transfer the image to the medium. It even works with magazines.

The above will produce a pretty high quality transfer but you can use other liquids you have hanging around the house such as white spirit/turps mixed with soap/washing up liquid 1 tablespoon to 2 with about 50ml water. It produces a worse but interesting result that is certainly good enough for making stencils or as a basis for other art. You can do some cool stuff with just a photocopier or printer. :)
