#ImproveMyPhoto - please!

This is one of my favorite shots. I have an opportunity to put 5 of my works in a local art gallery, and this is on my shortlist. I've never done any exhibitions or galleries and never tried to sell my photos until now. So I'm looking for opinions on 3 things:

1. What changes could make this jump out at you as a truly extraordinary image?
2. What could I do to make this the kind of image someone might want hanging on a wall?
3. What medium would you print this to for use in a gallery? I'm leaning towards either metal or acrylic metal (https://bayphoto.com/wall-displays/metalprints/acrylic-metalprints/)

I would appreciate any thoughts on how best to improve this and prep it for a simple showing (meaning this is not a fancy gallery -- it's just a trial run to figure out how to get into printing, presentation, etc. before I move up to higher-end galleries for the real deal).

Shot taken in 2012, deep inside Mendenhall Glacier, Juneau, Alaska.
