Beautiful night photography, no doubt, and you're making that vintage Takumar 35 sing, I must say. (Wish you had posted the image a bit bigger, but it's linked to your Flickr where it can be more appreciated.)

Exceptional technique, great location, great exposure balance. The line of cars and star patterns are all pulling the eye into the image, but then there is nothing to settle the eye on. Personally I would have liked a strong(er) point of interest.

Nice shot. I am a big fan of the Takumar 35mm 3.5.

All then ones I found for 70 to 90 are using M42 mount system.
Is the adaper to K mount expensive ?

---------- Post added 12-27-19 at 01:49 AM ----------

Oh ok, it's only 2.5 and can be fixed on the lens
The F/2.5 are very expensive but the 3.5 are not. Probably better for day shots than night ones if you don't want too much ISO noise.

Nice colours and well lit, congratulations on a great shot. I think what adds to it for me is the fact the cars on the right hand side are a pretty universal colour and almost the same size and shape, which leads the eye down that line.

Well done

Try the lens, it is great - the m42|pk adapter - try to get a real Pentax one - the immitation/3rd party may not fit well or damage your mount in the camera

I'm not sure what the point of interest is, my eye gets drawn to the top right blue school sign first, to the roof on the left second.
The top right starburst is also very distracting, I think you would get drawn more into the street if you crop out that and the blue school sign.
One step to the right would potentially also drawn you more into the street.

As a last remarks, the photo is slightly skewed to the left, or at least the buildings on the right are tilting inwards.

Nice colors, and mood, but I miss the point of interest.
