Spotting From JetBlue T5 *continued*

Last discussion archived. Found here : Kjfk Lay-over. Spotting From The Terminal? (by DonalMW Nov 10 2010 in Aviation Photography)#menu1

Spent an enjoyable 4 hour lay-over in JFK the other day. Took some pics. I'll attach a url to view these pics at the end of this message. I think I did a good job for an amateur. I'll accept CONSTRUCTIVE criticism to the pictures except for the ones of the A380 which didn't co-operate with the sun.
Most pics were taken down at the end near the funky seats. I kind of hid behind the big concrete support pole and shot for maybe 1hr. I had my newborn son with me in his stroller. He co-operated surprisingly well by sleeping the whole time I was taking pictures.
Camera used Pentax K-7.
Lens SMC Pentax-DA 1:4-5.8 55-300mm ED

I'd like to upgrade my lense sometime to the 60-250 f4 Pentax lens, but that's $1,200 worth.....

Anyhoo url as promised.

That shot of the Etihad A340 touching down on 31R is excellent! I'll have to haul my butt over to that spot.

Thank you. All the heavies were using the perpendicular RWY (744's A380's 777's) so this was a pleasant surprise.
