Thoughts on this style

Can someone please share their thoughts on this processing style for the night photos that this photographer is posting?

I realize that the lens and the focal length is bringing in some magic. Probably 35-50mm or so FL, a long-ish exposure too - something like 1-2 seconds. I think the magenta slider is up in the white balance getting that reddish tone. However, that is only happening in the mid tones - highlights and shadows and protected. Highlights and shadows are exaggerated, probably by increasing contrast.

Then there is a glow of some kind added in the highlights. Orton effect does not give me a similar look. Maybe it is added only in selected areas.

I am not sure if this is done using a preset or the photographer has a workflow. Any thoughts appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
