Color questions

Hello!

The concept of how colors work still confuses me a bit. I know that LUT's do not provide the exact same coloration on every monitor since LUTs are applied after ingame color information is sent to the monitor and monitors can display colors in different ways. The biggest difference is to see when you use an LCD optimized LUT on an HDT monitor. So far so good. I have only one monitor at hand so I can't really test all the differences.

Now I have made in-game screenshots of the sky color to make a comparison shot.
Vanilla game sky has a strong cyan tint.
My color rework has a more dark blue in it.

Now I made screenshots of both and copied them into Photoshop.
Looking at the pictures the colors seem to be different. The vanilla cyan sky now has a light blue color and my color rework looks more purple than blue??

Now since I can not do screenshots from what my ingame colors look like I have nothing to show you. Shouldn't have the screenshot the exact same coloration as i see ingame? Can anyone shed a light on this? ^^
