Just by moving the highlight slider to the left you will be miles ahead of the LR example you posted.

I wish it was that simple. Main and region highlights moved all the way to the left:

I'm sure we can get there if we distort the tone curve in ways that would probably require a lot of knowledge, experience or time. Again, not my main point here anyway.

I didn't say it was that simple. I said that you would be miles ahead of the image you posted. My guess is that there are quite a few people on the forum here that would only need a couple of minutes with your original to show you several variations of your image that would be as good or perhaps better than the PN image. And I'm not saying that one program is better than the other... only that for those considering both programs, your attempt at a comparison might hurt more than it helps.  If you just wanted to show the results of the automatic feature in PN then it might have been better to show only the PN images instead of presenting it as some sort of comparison to LR.   But again, maybe I am misunderstanding your overall point here.   It came across to me that you were saying that PN can recover highlights better than LR and maybe that is not your point at all.
