For the spaces between floor joists I would cut 2" thick foam in to blocks that fit between the joists, to make this easier make them a little small and use great stuff expanding foam to seal them in place, it is best to do this on a cold windy day so you can feel the drafts coming in to your house.
I would use the same kind of foam to insulate the basemen walls as it will hold up to moisture and you can tape the seams for even more protection.
I also notice that your pipes are not insulated at all, altho they are PVC so they don't lose heat as fast as copper it would be worth checking to see how warm they are and if they are warm then insulate them.
