DUEL... D700 vs D7000 Dynamic Range - challenge

I envy D7000 Dynamic Range reported as better than D700 at Low Iso (Ref: DxOmark, at iso-100)

So with my D700 I challenge a DUEL to the owners of D7000 to stretch the Dynamic Range, see below.

Risk: You might be dead if you are late to draw your gun.
Do the same stretching and lets see your "gun" capability.

A bad dynamic range will reveal banding or noise in shadows area or severe color shift (if so, you are dead, or take cover under topaz denoise or dfine2 or paint over).

Of course this is for fun for D7000 owners

The Challenge:

1. Pushing Shadows:
Before processing, an extremely underexposed:

Push the FILL LIGHT to 100 (in photoshop ACR or LR):

Final result:

Note: I cropped the final result and increased the saturation a little bit, just a cosmetic touch.

Pushing Shadows (again):
Before:

After:

2. Pulling Highlights:
Pull down the highlights to reveal the details.
Before:

Push the RECOVERY to 100 (in photoshop ACR or LR) and reduce the Exposure:
After:

Extreme touch (optional for fun a cosmetic touch):
