Default blotchy photos??..what do you think

hey everyone, im new to photography and i just got my hands on a D5000, i love the camera, but lately i've been taking some shots like indoor party, lanscape shots. but everytime i upload the pics onto computer and kinda zoom into the pics, its all blotchy looking..this happened for the party pics and the outdoor pics i took today..is this suppose to happen? its nice when its zoomed out, but if i want to look in detail, its all blotchy and not clear, i used the kit lens (18-55 VR). also i understand that jpeg shots will result in loss of quality, but i didnt expect it to be this much. if you have any questions on the details, just ask.

Are these 100 percent crops? Meaning, if you zoom in to 100 percent, are these crops from that resolution?

It would help if you left the EXIF data intact. There is some camera setting not set right. The resolution is pretty small. But I need more info before I would be able to figure out what went wrong.

Better post the uncropped post and the Exif data.

as others have mentioned, we have no way to tell anything from these without EXIF and a full image. there are plenty of hosting sites that allow full size image upload, just put one up and link us there.

my guess is a combination of viewing at too high magnification, high iso, and poor exposures. but without proper evidence, it is a mere guess.

the second photo is a 100 percent crop, i used photoshop to crop the second photo, i will post the EXIF data later in the morning, once i figure out how to. the resolution is large, i believe at it's largest. the camera was hand held and the iso was i think hi 1 or just below, again i have to go back to the EXIF data.

well i wanted to post the uncropped photo but the file is too large. and the resolution exceeds the limit, i will post some more data, once i get on my desktop

well h1 is 6400 on the nikons i believe. and is the reason your photos look so blotchy. that high of ISO should be reserved for emergencies only. it will be noisy, lose detail, have color blotches, and just generally will look bad, especially when enlarged.
