    Fix is rather subjective - but what editing software do you have access to?

    .

    never mind, wasn't thinking.

    If you mean the fact that it's washed out.... there really isn't much you can do, that's the result of the sun poking out through the clouds.

    The top left corner is overexposed, there just isn't much fixing that can be done. If there's nothing there - there's nothing there, so nothing to fix.

    In the orignal - tricky to very hard to correct that. See with digital cameras if the camera gets an overexposed or underexposed area (white or black) it records only white or black in those areas - no other details are logged. Thus you can't fix those broken areas in editing.
    Shooting and editing in RAW mode can give you more leaniancy with how much you can deal with an under/overexposed element in a shot, but the best thing is a correct exposure at the time of shooting. Also if you read up and use your cameras histogram whilst in the field you can tell where over and underexposed areas are on the LCD and decide if you need to shoot again with altered settings. In the shot you have here (for example) you could counter the overexposure by shooting with either a faster shutter speed or a smaller (bigger f number) aperture (or a combination of both).
