thank you all for your input, I'm very appreciated.

your critics were or will be taken in consideration in the right time. But, for now, the main reason I request your assistance is about another thing.

there's nothing wrong with my d90, I'm just a bit nostalgic, that's all.

When I edit I was aware that it was incomplete, but before I went any further and risk ruining all, I reached for more eyes (yours) to see if I'm going in the right direction.

I didn't want to say much at the time, but when I asked, What's the first thing that comes into your mind? I hoped the answer would be film. But the simple fact that wasn't clear for you means that I didn't succeed (despite some of you nailed the nail on the head, bullseye )

Plus I tried to go for a generic film look since I haven't yet some old photos to guide me through, so my memory/imagination is all that I have for now, so , i'll take way of date film with expired chemicals :), at least is a start.

I think i manage to do this with my sony. I'm pretty happy with the overall result, despite not being quite a photo but it's closer to an add in a 60's or 70's magazine.

Oh well, back to the drawing board.

There isn't really such a thing as a "generic film look". Films can be monochrome or colour, negative or positive, any size from 8mm cine up to 10x8 inch sheet film. They all look different. Films from different makers look different.

Kodak even made a colour film for photographing babies.

This shot from 1964 was taken on Kodak Tri-X film in available light, handheld, so with a slow shutter speed.

This was shot on 5x4 inch transparency (positive) film with the camera on a tripod, and scanned with an Epson desktop scanner. A bit more PP would improve the colours.
