Pleasant long exposure.
Good, sharp result.

There's a distracting, muddy foreground, but I feel like the rest of the image would be lost without some other plane of distance to judge the rest of the photo to. The main capture of the bridge is lit very nicely.

Nice image and Welcome to the forum! The main subject is very nicely rendered and quite stunning. Good work! Wally has a point regarding the foreground. It may be possible to burn/desaturate that part of the picture with the proper PP tools to make your subject even more dramatic.

The glow from the city in the background gives the image a nice gradient of light.

The Pentax kit lens is an excellent lens. I own a Sigma 18-50 f/2.8 and some Pentax ltd prime lenses, but if I simply want to go out and have the flexibility of a zoom, I usually take my pentax kit lens. It's light to carry and great optics for it's price. I dare say this is one of the best kit lenses available on the market. I'm thinking about upgrading mine to the new WR lens for rainy days as I don't have any weather resistant or sealed lenses which would really come in handy on rainy days. We have a lot of rainy days in Stavanger :P
