I am not certain I understand the problem here. I see in your first three pics that you piece of hardwood is higher than your current hardwood. Does your subfloor have a lip there that is causing the difference in height? The height looks like it matches up good to the stair trim.

Somethings way off here, A properly installed landing tread would be sitting on top of the subfloor and be 3/4" in height and should match up with the 3/4" prefinished flooring your trying to install.
That piece under the ballister should have been sitting flat on the subfloor also.

If the floor you are going to install is thicker than the other wood (see last picture) how can it be a subfloor issue? The stair moulding is floating above the subfloor and your flooring is flat to the subfloor and yet it still is thicker.

I assumed that piece in the foreground was a piece already installed of the new flooring. Is that the case, or are you trying to match up to an existing floor?
