Next adjusted the basic settings:

Exported the picture into Topaz photoFXlab, open the plug-ins, utilized Clarity and then added Detail in re-imported the picture back into Lightroom

I then used copies of that picture to run a number of different filters on it to give me many different results from natural, surreal to impressionistic.
