Well,

It does show without words how much is 'very surprisingly' there, which illustrates the power/advantage of having a RAW version available, either as your regular process, or as backup in case something needs 'saving'. An alternative would be a seriously overexposed version, again 'salvaged' by RAW.

^ This.  I took several shots at the Boston Public Library with my RX100 that were essentially useless in JPEG.  They looked somewhat similar to the OP's OOC JPEG for this shot.  When I PP'd the RAW file though, there was actually a considerable amount of recoverable data.
