You've already heard about the "flaws" of this image in terms of the challenge; it does not meet the terms of the challenge, inasmuch as even though the face is hidden in this picture it is still an actual face. The challenge was about "finding" faces in things that aren't really faces; tree trunks, reflections, cloud formations, the possibilities were endless.
You've also heard that the white spaces here, and the tiny margins right and left, are very offputting, and I agree.
Speaking of it as an image, it's in many ways quite spectacular. It's a brooding, strong photograph. It's not 100% to my taste, but it seems to me you've probably accomplished what you set out to do. Just out of a sense of exeprimentation, you might try taking this image and reducing the contrast/oversaturation a little bit in the sky, maybe even soften it up a bit, and see how that alters the mood of the thing. There are many, many ways you could handle the post-processing on this image.
