How could I get more value out of this hand?

On this hand, I think my river bet smelled like value bet or he thought i hit an open ended draw. I am pretty sure he either had a set or two pair on flop.

I thought that if i checked the river looking to check-raise, he would have checked behind. My bet must have convinced him that I had the goods or he was totally on a draw. I'd like thoughts on what sized bet you think he would have called on the river or any other way to get more value out of this hand.
