on the last photo with cave - yes, but i didn't bothered to work on the color there.

Not just the last photo, all of them. It's just particularly bad. You cannot really "work" on the colour, it'll never be the same. It's lost...forever

It's hard to say. The Fill and Hightlght sliders on most raw converters adversely affect color with even normally exposed images, let alone pushed ones. It's how the tonality curve is being compressed non-linearly while trying to maintain continuity across tonal regions. Not neccessarily the fault of the camera. If you instead develop 2 images separately with linear exposure pushes, and combine them by hand, it improves the color response. It would be interesting to see how they would look if the OP did it this way instead.
