    I'd say it's 2/3rds a white balance problem (or it was a blue-ass day) and 1/3rd underexposure. ctrl+M, set a gray point, and then auto-curve.

    When you shoot into the sun the camera exposes for it, so it's not underexposed, it is actually exposed properlly for the sky, if you would have opened up the shutter then you would have exposed the city properlly and overexposed the sky. What you might want to do is use a tripod and take one frame exposing for the sky and then an exact image exposing for the city, then merge them in PS.

    I like the color temperature you used, I know it is super blue, but it is very close to what it should be fo an underexposed sky.

    Photoshop (CS2 to be exact) using:

    - Curves
    - Exposure
    - Color balance
    - Levels
    - Selective Color
    - Gradient Map
    - Surface Blur
    - Unsharpen Mask

    Took about 10min. Did it on my break at work.

    Oh, and nice smog...blech.
