The eyes generally do not rest on the center of a photograph. Following the rule of thirds here will work well. Crop so the plane is on the top (imaginary) horizontal line. This will allow all elements to have a presence without lots of uninteresting space.

Edited comments:

My original message here is for the first image, but will also work well with the second.

Rodney, I don't know the rule of thirds. I plan on taking a digital photography class after this semester. However, if you have the time to explain the rule of thirds to me I would be thankful.

The rule of thirds is the division(by imaginary lines) of an image into thirds. Master painters realized that placing the subject or main areas of interest where these lines intersect renders a more visually effective painting. The rule of thirds also applies in photography.

You can place your subject where the lines intersect marked by circles or on the horizontal or vertical lines.
