EC2 - Cruising Dreams

In this treatment, I sought to soften the overall look of the image, to give it a bit of a dreamy/painterly look.

All work was done in Lightroom. General exposure and contrast adjustment to strengthen lines between details. Sharpen/denoise to reduce some of the grain in the original image.  Clarity/vibrance/dehaze applied to bring up the colour range and pop details contrast.  Finally dragged "Texture" to its limit in negative direction, which has effect of softening lines and smoothing areas of uniform colour.
