Re: Overexposed - some help please.

ORIGINAL

That's a great shot of your girl Ray, regardless of the technicalities which were adequately covered by several posters before me.

I concentrated on recovering and enhancing detail and colors and I was pleased to see that most of the blown out areas can be brought back in line (without any background replacement, cloning etc)  by using normal ACR and CS6.

You could replace the sky completely or clone some clouds in but to be honest I like it as it is, only slightly cropped to bring the subject a bit more off center:
