Here's a thought on glowing with a period look in mind and I can't tell whether you have of haven't at this res... Once you add glows and blurs in post production it actualy destroys the natural grain quality and makes it look 'modern'. I think the old soft focus filters would have been used on camera, thus leaving the film grain intact. So... have a play with re-adding a minute grain once all processing is done. If you've already thought of this, I shall place my head in a bucket of water
