In the order that I encountered them

1) You have the camera set to Adobe RGB. This is OK for printing but bad for web display. Convert to sRGB for web use.

2) Exposure. You're under-exposing significantly, hence the dark and muddy colours. Learnto use the histogram display and exposure compensation.

3) White balance. Seems off to me. Not sure if you used auto of fixed. Check out whats happening here as the colour temp seems to high.

4) Saturation. For landscapes you're better advised (in most circumstances) to boost colour saturation, though thos can be done in post processing.
5) Sharpening. Needs more, either in camera or in post.
