You missed a couple of intersection moves, as shown in the following diagram.

There is a pointing pair of 3's in Box 2 (cells marked*) which removes 3 from r56c6. More decisively, there is a claiming pair of 6's in Box 2 Row 3 (cells marked #) which removes 6 from r1c4, solves that cell and the puzzle.
