Processed from RAW using DxO

Just adjusted the second jpeg image with "Lights and Shadows" in Photoshop, it doesn't seem so bad.

Yes, you've done a very nice job there, but there's still missing, unrecoverable detail (eg, in the well-lit areas behind the statues, or on the roof). The wider aspect ratio is also not recoverable from an ooc jpeg. And I bet it took longer to post-process that jpeg than it did to process the original RAW file, so there's no time saving, either.
