Man oh man :) Thanks a bunch for all the great comments. I usually don't go so extreme on the post processing but because of the no editing restrictions for this challange I decided I had to.

The History:
I took this photo in the Vestfjords of Iceland while on a trip visiting my relatives that live there. This man was a part of an outdoor museum about fishing in the old days.

Editing steps:
Worked on different areas with adjustments layers. Brightness/Contrast, Levels. Added a layer and used soft light and lowered the opacity. At the end I added another layer on top and made it bw and used variations to make it brown. Then instead of soft light I used hue and the picture got this brownish/old feel to it. Lowered the opacity a bit.
