    I'm no expert with pool building, but offhand I'd say it looks fine. You do want a fairly rough texture to the shotcrete so the plaster has something to "grab" on to.

    I'd wager that your pool will come out looking great after the plaster etc is installed.

    When they start the tile, they have to put a couple of coats of plaster on to smooth and waterproof the surface, so not much to worry about.

    Oh, forgot to welcome you to the best pool forum on the net!
