    I like it much more; the only thing I think might be missing is a stroke around the building. I know it's cartoony but it will help separate the building stone from the ground. Overall, though, much nicer.

    Much improved!

    I'm with Ascension, some definition around the building would be really good. With the ground textures, try overlaying more on top of them and using a cloud filter as a layer mask to break up the edges whcih are very defined. It'll give them a more natural look.

    Your light source has a horizontal line which doesn't look great either, I'm not sure how you did the light....I'm guessing a gradient fill on a semicircle, again the quickest fix might be a layer mask and some judicious black blobs just to get rid of that horizontal line. Bring it under the layer with the fireplace too...that should help.

    Also, try using a 'uniter' that's what I call it anyway. Think of a dominant theme colour for the map (maybe a reddish brown if you want somethng warm) and flood fill the top layer with that colour and set the blend mode to multiply. It should bring the colours together nicely.
