Not sure what you're trying to do exactly. What do you mean by
"saving" it? Was it originally a RAW file or a JPG from the camera? If
it was a JPG, then there is no headroom, no recoverable data for the
overexposed sections. They're blown, they're white, and there's
nothing you can do about that except to make the white parts a
different colour. All detail in those overexposed sections does not
exist, and therefore cannot be recovered.

If this was a RAW file from the camera, then there may be _some_
recoverable detail stored in the file. But that picture is so blown in
so many sections, I doubt any available headroom will be of much use.
You'll still end up with barely any detail in those white sections.
Again, the only thing you'll be able to do is make the white into a
different colour.

If you're looking for artistic impression advice to learn how to make
the overexposed section look more appealing, that's purely a
subjective opinion. What you've done so far looks pretty good, in my
