This photograph belongs to the GANGREL DAM, in the state of Chattisgarh. Though the dam is not visible, the photo seeks to capture the river Mahanadi and the road on the dam which spans across the water stretch.
The nearest town to the dam is Dhamtari which is nearly 15 kms away. The 1246m dam is a powerhouse of action handling 15000 cusec water, and feeding nearly 57,000 hectares of agricultural land around Dhamtari, Raipur, Durg and Bhilai, all important cities of the state.
Mahanadi river is one of the most important rivers of India and is about 850 kms in length.
This photo is from the archives, taken with a primitive Powershot, so please excuse the lack of finer details.

The dam seems to be very big. Nice view having the rod in one side. I like the greenery in the right side. I found the contrast is a little greenish. Overall a good pic having good details.

Dobar tekst o mestu i brani sa opisom, lep pogled ...
Dobar snimak, kontrast i perspektiva, lepo pokazano mesto i brana, lepe boje.
Lepo mesto za setnju i trenutak sa oblacima koji donose kisu.
Prijatno vece i lepa noc, sve najbolje.

a nice they of this dam. Like your composition. Except a bit tilt at right it is a nice composition. You may reduce the green tone a bit here. Overall a nice frame.

intriguing construction and you took the picture from good POV which sets nice angle to the dam. I like the light management in here, all the elements are properly exposed. Good sharpness too.
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your day
