Is this an acceptable paint job?

So my car needed the door and quarter painted and the body shop masked off the inner door jamb.

The problem is that its pretty clear where the masking tape line is and the paint is two different colours. Its obvious to anyone that looks that the car was repainted. Look at the difference from left to right, its a clear line where they taped it off. Also, if I run my hand over it in some areas I can feel a raised area. The way they taped it is also not completely straight, if I look at it there are wavy lines where it looks like they just slapped on the tape without making sure that its straight.

For those of you that have had similar work done, is this normal or should I take it back?
