Paint Question

I recently got my driver door fixed due to a hit and run back in August. I had to pay for the thing myself and it wasn't cheap. But now, I am a little disappointed because the new paint on the door, plus the fenders cause I had rust work to do on the fenders, is just a tad, like I mean almost not noticeable, lighter shade of blue than the rest of the car.

Does the paint need to breathe and oxidize for a bit before it will match the rest of the car? Could it be because the clear coat is newer, i.e. no swirls and what not, that it makes the color look a bit different?

Waited 8 months to get this door fixed, and now it isn't exactly making my day. BTW, the car only came out of the shop on Tuesday. And only yesterday evenin did I find out it was a shade lighter.
