Pool plaster mottling?

Hello everyone,
First time poster here, but have been following TFP for a while now. We finished our pool in Austin, TX back in October of 2020. I spent a fortune on tile and plaster - $11k on just plaster/finish to be exact. We elected to get the “Aquavations Hydrazzo” which was one of the nicest finishes we looked at. However, I’m a little unhappy with the way it turned out. It was supposed to be smooth everywhere, but there are definite areas where there are rough spots. Additionally, I’m pretty sure the plaster is mottled. I’ll attach pictures, but wanted to ask the forum what you guys think before I go back to the plaster company. Any help/opinions are greatly appreciated!

Welcome to TFP.

You can have them do more diamond sanding on the rough areas if you are willing to drain and refill the pool.

Your color variations are well within normal tolerances.

Despite the “mottling” I actually really like the look of the pool, has character.
