colour brightness improvement tips

im struggling to get a decent level of colour and brightness when the weather is a bit grey

i gave it a bit more saturation, sharpness and it then seems over exposed

i can get it so it looks great in places but then in other places its very over exposed

any tips from the pro's on how i can improve things?

is there a was i can bring the exposure down just on the sky's and water sprays?
i tried using selective colour in the secondary colour corrector but i didnt seem to have any joy with that but maybe im doing it wrong
take a look at my videos

Try adding an S curve in the Sony curves effect.

And have you tried using levels?

You may find the chart attached to my post (copied below) of 9 September helpful.
