This is not correct. Protective Penumbra keeps the character in shadow. This prevents the condition for the penalty, IE being in bright light, from occurring. "This spell keeps the target slightly in shadow."
This is different from an ability that causes a character to actually be immune to the curse.
"I'm in enough shadow that there isn't enough bright light to trigger my curse's condition and thus affect me" and "I can be in bright light because I have an ability which prevents my curse from penalizing me even when its condition is met" are not the same things. At all. They only end up with the same outcome, you not taking penalties. How this is achieved should be important.
Nice try with the flavor text, but I could be in an area of a Daylight spell, something which I could argue that, based on the flavor text, Protective Penumbra doesn't apply to due to the rule of Darkness and Light spells countering each other. So really, the only thing the spell really does at that point is provide the ignorance of penalties.
Whereas Lightbringer provides immunity, which is actually even better for removing penalties, because it treats it though as if you're never affected by it.
And as I've pointed out, the rules don't care about any of this except in the cases of removing the curse, which cannot be done without deific interference. Anything else? Is just wishful thinking on your part, and has zero basis in the RAW.
