get some more detail in the sky

Dear friends,

I am trying to get some more character in the sky from this shot:

The original shot

If I decrease the exposure, and some increase of blue in blue channel (I use darktable), I end up with:

This gives acceptable structure in the sky, but after luminosity masking, I get some bad border between sky and flowers.

How I can properly decrease the luminosity of the sky only?

This is the raw file.

Thanks for your time and help in advance.
