First Impressions
Nice showcase of the colors of this rock, I like how you've shown it in context, in situ.

Photograph Information, Technicals & Composition Review
640 would have been better, if the quality was there. A more refined crop at the bottom to eliminate the green foliage. Given the predominantly square shaped rocks in this, I think a square framing/crop would have likely enhanced the subject and image. The OOF (out of focus) fore bottom right detracts, but fairly minor - a deeper DOF (depth of field) might have eliminated that and also showcased more texture in the rocks as well.

The purple colored section on the right, throws the overall balance out slightly, so perhaps paying attention to that when choosing where to crop may have helped refine the image even further.

Comments, Score & Placement Review
69/82? - hmm, the colors grabbed people's attention, but I guess the scene didn't hold their interest long enough.

Summary
I think the potential is there with the image as is (quality pending), but a more refined crop and some tweaking in pp is needed to bring it to life more. Good meet of the Challenge.

nice Basalt, and a good overall composition of this shot. The colours through the rocks does make this photo work.

Neat textures and colors to this. Not much to grab my interest otherwise, but hey, it's a rock.
