It basically doubles the focal length of the lens. It does this by cropping the original image (assuming you are shooting JPEG) and then upscales the image to the original image size that you selected.

In reality the focal length doesn't change at all.  I know what you mean of course, which is that it effectively halves the fov/aov (via a process of lossy digital zoom) so it is equivalent to an image captured at twice the focal length, but I think we should be careful when explaining things to people who might not know any better.

Anyway, excellent shots, of excellent subjects
