Captain Frederic John Walker (3 June 1896 – 9 July 1944) was a British Royal Navy officer noted for his exploits during World War II. Walker was the most successful anti-submarine warfare commander during the Battle of the Atlantic and was known more popularly as Johnnie Walker (after the whisky).
It’s been nearly a month since I got out out with the Fuji-XE2. This winter the UK is being bombarded by continuous Atlantic low pressure systems as the Gulf Stream drags these in from America. The flooding in parts of the UK is the worst ever seen records began. Yesterday, I pinched my wife’s E2 and we had a rare crisp winters day with almost perfect light. A pal and I visited Liverpool and were not to be disappointed.
My intention was to use the camera in RAW and B&W jpeg mode. This would preserve the colour image and allow me to assess the B&W file out of camera.
I am extremely please with the results and below are examples of other files.
The Albert Dock has been restored and converted into a shopping and leisure area and is part of the Liverpool waterfront regenerated area.
I am absolutely delighted with all the results and the RAW converted images are, to my mind, excellently rendered. All images are “out of camera” and no adjustments to tone and dynamic ranges have been made. However, some 18mm exposures have been corrected for converging vertical distortion.

I am really pleased with the results and especially the B&W jpgs. More results can be fond on my flickr site.
