First, a image that's 1280 in the vertical dimension will be too large to be seen all at once on some members monitors.
Second, is there any point to sharpen the tree & other OOF parts of the background? There's little benefit IMO & just results in a larger file size. Why sharpen noise if you don't have to? There are several ways to sharpen, but generally, I only sharpen the part of the image that will benefit the most, & that also results in a smaller file size at the same Quality setting.

Hmmm ...

There is something untoward going on ... far too many artifacts. But I am running out of ideas.

How big is the JPEG file after you export it from LR?

Well ... that's more than plenty. The only other time I can recall seeing something similar on POTN was when a poster had applied unusually high levels of sharpening in LR ... and racked up the clarity setting as well. But I'd have thought you would have seen this in LR before exporting, and you didn't.

Comment and (constructive) criticism always welcome.
