Actually that's excellent exposure for the composition. You could fix that with several methods, the healing brush, clone stamp, but the best thing is to avoid such a drastic backlit shot. I think it looks as it should under the conditions and anything you would do to it would detract from the image as I see it.

I'll attach an example. I took this shot from the west end of the Denver airport. The first has been Paintered quite a bit for effect but compare it to another similar shot and maybe you'll see what I mean. My favorite is the first (forgive the quality, I took these through a window)

The first with sun glare and edited in Painter IX:

A little off topic, but what the heck is with the pencilled eyebrows?
