Restore a Jpeg, no sky back to being alive

Good Afternoon,

I am very new, but love restoration. I have read Katrin and Ctein both's book, but I chose a photo from ageofuncertainty website to fix for practice, but after two days, I need help. I will attach what I finished. The normal procedures seem not apply, except channel mixer, dust and scratches, and a mask with clouds to blend in the blown out jpegged sky. Can a photo like this be restored with somewhat clarity or am I dreaming.

This is the before photo
