I can't figure out why the image looks so came from the camera this way but my settings were no different than normal. My initial guess is that the soft look is created by a combination of movement and shallow DOF...just enough movement to soften everything but not blur it? In any case, PP included no goofy filters, just levels, curves and some tinting.
