Did i mess my pan up?

Sorry for the bad photo, my phone camera sucks.
Last week i bought a de buyer force blue pan, i tried using it today to make some pork chops amd steak. After using, i washed it with hot water and a nylon brush. I noticed the surface now looks like this. It does not look much like the new seasoning on other carbon steel pans ive seen, did something go wrong? I used it on an induction stovetop on the 9th power level (out of 15).

  1. No. The seasoning just wasn't set in well and you lost a little. Keep cooking with it. I lost a little seasoning on my pan last night when I got my Swiss steak a little too hot. No worries, a little bacon for breakfast, ground beef or cubes for stew and, all will be right with the world again.

      Thanks again for your help, Sid. I'll just keep using it then. Just a little nervous as I've never had CS before!
