Aside from the slow turnover as these guys have already pointed out, you need to get more aggressive with the second pull - the lift is practically one speed from start to finish. As the bar comes into about mid-thigh, you need to explode upward, not just extend. Dip snatches, high-hang snatches and block snatches should help with that, but you also simply need to cue yourself to get more aggressive. Take a day of training where you don't think much if at all about technique, and you make your goal speed at the top of the pull - see what happens.
