Good potential, I like the reflection. For me, the biggest issue in this photograph is that your 'mono lake pool' is competing too much against the foreground and the background/distance, which also makes the image on the whole a bit busy.
Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
As is, a more refined crop to showcase the pool better would improve the image, in my opinion. If you get a chance to go back, I'd suggest trying a variation in angles to, at least, eliminate the water behind - or maybe include it more but either way, trying to ensure that the "tufas" (?) stand on their own against either a shallow depth of field if land in the background, or else be able to 'use' the water behind them. This would seemingly mean that a very careful 'clamber' across the rocks at the fore would be required to be able to get a somewhat extreme angle, but you might end up with a photograph that truly showcases what you are trying to show.
Comments, Score & Placement Review
144/403 in a Free Study is a very good placing, especially for your 2nd entry at DPC. A score of 5.90 seems about average that placing. Your average of 6.75 from your commenters, is a little more information for you to couple with their comments.
Nice lighting and, as mentioned above, just some variation in cropping/composition, plus possibly a perspective correction (water levels, fore & rear, reflections, etc (?)), make this an even better image in my opinion.
