young cat / LR export question

Hello all,

Here's a picture I made using NEX-5 with Canon 50mm 1.4 S.S.C., shot with f2.0, I believe.

The lens is well known and I am very satisfied with it.

But I noticed a colour issue when I was exporting this pic from LR4 to JPG. The exported version looks like it has a bit colder temperature than the picutre I'm looking at in Lightroom. I've tried to make a screenshot with the comparison but I am now really out of my mind or my eyes play tricks with me because I can't see no difference on the screenshot below, while I swear I saw that difference just a minute ago! The greens on the export are a bit colder.

I've tried looking up this problem but I did not find definite answers. My NEX is set up to shoot in sRGB and I'm exporting with the same color space. I am using Process Version 2012. I don't know where to look for solution.

I noticed that when I export completely unedited picture from LR (only with Auto-tone, PV2012 and Lens profile applied on import) then the export looks exactly like in the LR window. The cat image is of course heavily manipulated and this export looks different.. and I am unable to prove it

Please give me a hint.


above is Lightroom, below exported JPG opened with quick look and window laid over LR window.. the difference in temperature is noticeable.
