poor hardwood floor job?

Is this normal?

Part of our remodel involved adding new hardwood flooring to match the existing. But it seems like the work is not great compared to the existing hardwoods. The nail holes seem much more visible in the new wood. Is this normal?

And the last picture is of the old wood…where the nail holes have lots of blackness around the nails after they completed the refinishing (this was not how it used to look)

Thoughts? This is my first time dealing with hardwoods, so maybe this is all normal…but the rest of the house doesn’t look this way so I assume there must be a difference in the quality of work in some way?

(Ignore the difference in wood color. That’s all lighting. The finish color looks fine throughout)
