The second picture to my taste is better however seems like the tiles are too flat.

I would try the following:

1. Reduce sharpness and noise reduction probably to -2 or even -3

2. Reduce contrast only to -1

3. Increase saturation +1

And give it another go with Ev 0. The landscape setting enhances saturation and contrast compared to the standard profile so will look a bit ragged for the kind of shot you took

The contrast IS reduced to only - 1. I think that at - 0.3 lightening would been perfect instead of -0.7.  I did a lot of tests under different conditions. And for non landscape and in extreme conditions -0.3 is good for shadow, normal lightening. With a lot of light and bright skies, just go up to -0.7, leave contrast on -1. Also now I am practicing, and use more Jpeg, but when travelling use Raw en Jpeg. It easier to correct the picture when it is a bit too dark as second one, and using Jpeg is fine still.

Yes, pictures in this camera are a bit over-sharpened. But a lot of people like this, so if I put them like that, not many people will care and for my albums can lower them in Raw.
