Yes nice subject, but why have a large background that is out of focus

Well that's simple, I'm still learning how to use my first D-SLR camera :-)

looks fine with blurry background as focus is placed on the lady, only thing i can say though is it would have looked so much better with legs and feet in that shot, apart from that its fine

i would suggest to go the other way and exlude her legs and most of the trees on the right all together (ie zoom in or move closer)

Remember this is all new to me, I'm learning about picture composition, shutter speed and aperture settings. So please help me learn what I should try to do in the future

You've gotten some good feedback so far. I would just add a pet peeve of mine -- you have framed your subject such that the caution sign in the background is right next to her face. You should make a habit of looking at all the out-of-focus crap in an image before you click the shutter. An awful lot of photographs are bad because people just don't take the time to look at what besides the subject is in the picture. If you don't want the sign by her face, don't use this compostion. If you get used to looking at the rest of the picture now, you will make better compositions and not need to spend your days in PhotoShop removing garbage.

tclune's got a point. -always try to see what objects are in the background. if you can use it them, then make sure they're in focus and tie into the comp. in someway. if not, then hide them or make sure they're really out of focus. In your picture, the sign can't be read so a move to the right would have hid it behind the woman's head. Also there are some black objects at the left -might be people, I would have waited till they moved on or moved myself far enough to the right to hide them behind the woman's head, or went with a large enough apeture and blurred out them out.
