    It's promising, but needs a little work.

    The depth of field has the tree in focus, but the background is still clear enough to be a bit distracting.

    Also, if the tree is the subject, then the red figure in the background draws the eye away from it.

    My suggestions are to focus on the figure and use a wider aperture if possible to focus the attention on the most eye-catching part, or (if you want to keep the tree as the center of attention) move the camera to hide the red figure and use a wider aperture to blur the background more.

    Awesome tips, I shall try using a wider aperture to blur it more, do you think this is something that can be fixed in Photoshop?
    Probably :)
