After posting a Front and a Side view, I now have an angular view of this beautiful building.
What is prominent here is the "Minar" where the Moghul and the Rajasthan influence is clear.
The Architect entrusted with the design was W. Emerson. A pupil of William Burges. The man appointed as an assistant to Emerson was Vincent J. Esch. A generation younger than Emerson, Esch had like him, gone out to India at the start of his career and in 1899 he was appointed Assistant Engineer in the Bengal Nagpur Railway, a job which gave him much practical experience in large-scale construction and costings. In the New Year of 1902, Emerson engaged him to prepare a sketch of his original design for the Victoria Memorial.

A closer view of this impressive building. The elegant lines are nicely depicted and offer some interesting contrasts between curves and verticals. Captured under a good light that helps bring out the detail to good effect. A bit pedantic I know, but I would be inclined to clone out the passer-by on the right.

A perfect compliment to your previous shots, all three seem to present new visions of this mighty building. In this, the texture of the brick stands out a lot more strongly. I really like the fade from strong light on left to clear blue on right too, it looks brilliant and created some excellent shadows on the building.
Thanks as always

As far as lighting is concerned you did managed well, finely exposed even in shadow area is visibly detailed. The compo is so balanced, pov is impressive with more depth and perspective as the commanding tower guides us smoothly. Again you retained mass of details on the stonework in its natural tones and really sharp of this splendid architecture with good enough contrast to light blue sky. Thanks to your creative effort, without doubt you did your best here with excellent result. Congrats, tfs

Namaskar dear Arunava
Difficult light conditions, but an excellent, sharp, well-contrasted composition. The perspective is good. As a minor improvement I would have cloned out the person in the right foreground. Well done!
