    Great shot - love it !!! (Considering that the photo seems to have been taken inside an indoor riding rink, with usually dim light, it come out very well.)

    How was the lens mounted (M42-to-K-mount adapter, I assume, but how was it configured for metering and exposure)?

    Yes, I used an adapter, took off the spring (too many times had them lock up) and secured with locktite on the threads.

    Put the aperture at manual, and did the shutter-priority setting. It was a medieval theatre setting, so the lighting worked great, except for color balance, which I had to adjust.

    This is why I love my Nikon D7000 so much. Nikon has kept their mount the same which allows me to use lenses dating back in to the mid to late 70's.
