My try on creating vintage look. Let me know if this works.
Thank you in advance.

I think you have the vintage feel, but the image is too sharp I've never seen an old-time photo that crisp - not normally a criticism, but it's the only thing stopping me believing this is really old.

(nice composition, and the crispness would normally be a plus)

Marek,

Very nice retro image, but I agree with CC's comment.

As an aside, PLEASE start displaying your images in the post itself, rather than showing a link. It is very, very easy to do. In the text input box, the eighth icon from the left is "Insert Image." Click it and just type the URL.

Luego

There are a couple of ways, you could do it in PS with a couple of techniques such as blurring, etc. Or you could use a Holga (or other toy camera) or a view camera and scan the image after, or you could get one of the pinhole camera adapters from Freestyle Photographic Supplies.

I am sure the other folks here have some great ideas.

Back in the day, I used to take a piece of black nylon from my wifes "run" stockings and pull it tight around the end of the lens with a rubber band (or, I took a cracked filter that fit the lens, broke out the glass, and threaded onto the front of the lens, trapping the nylon between the filter ring and lens.) and used a lit cigarette to burn a hole in the center (or wherever,according to the framing) to create a small sharp area where I needed, and the rest of the image has that soft dreamlike effect. So, maybe a black nylon, unburned, might accomplish this.
