Ink smearing

Hi, I can figure out why my ink is smearing here. I’m on a C&P windmill and am using photopolymer plates. I’ve not encountered this issue before. I have added and lessened the ink. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

It looks like a plate issue, not so much an inking issue.

Without seeing the plate, I’m only guessing that the plate wasn’t properly processed, and/or was over exposed.

It could also be an issue where the film isn’t dense enough.
