Those shots are rather poor, but that's not your fault, at least not entirely.

Digital zoom is NOT the same as cropping as the camera's softeware uses interpolation to make it work. This is why experienced shooters leave DC OFF. DC will often throw off metering and leave you less likely to get a sharp image.

Shooting at the long end of the optical zoom and then cropping in post will usually give superior results as well as more options.



You are missing Nikonworks point.  I'm sure he knows full well the limitations of digital zoom and doesn't need you to remind him.  His point appears to me to be that the quality/usefulness of his digital zoom shots are quite surprising given those limitations.
