Did you spray or brush? See http://www.paintscratch.com/blend.htm for information on blending paint if you sprayed. If you brushed the paint and it is a metallic, is is difficult to get a good match. Also, did you use rubbing compound on the clearcoat?

You can just sand the area and repaint it. I would probably prime it also before painting as this makes for a better finish.
