Re: Your fox

That's a very challenging pic for any app. The fox both has motion blur (due to subject movement) and is a bit out of focus. I don't think you're going to get a great result with anything. Your working of the image looks very over-sharpened to me... sharpening halos around the stalks etc. But everyone has their own threshold. 
Anyway, here's my attempt. I first masked the fox and did a motion blur normal on it. Then, without a mask, did a too-soft normal. I did all this on a separate layer PS, then adjusted the strength of the effect to my taste afterwards.
