Taken with my Rolleiflex 2.8c using Fuji Pro 400 H film.
I was on a bit of a mission to start using my Rolleiflex more and thought the current weather would be a subject worth documenting as they make such a big deal over so little snow here

Exposure is about right to suggest a miserable evening in London! I like the shot, but feel the figure needed to be bigger in the frame, and facing you. You can get round half this by some slight cropping, though keeping the square means the elements aren't quite in the right place.
Personally, I think shooting a Rollei is at least as much fun as the results you get from it (I've had 3, and the gf has one too), and seeing in square through a WLF is different to any other way of shooting.

I'd suggest a yellow filter and some nice B&W film is maybe the best way to use one, as the lenses are sharp as hell and contrasty, plus you have a f/2.8 rather than the f/3.5 which draw beautifully.

Happy shooting!

Nick

Thanks for the constructive feed back Nick really appreciate it. I am on a bit of a mission to get to use my Rolleiflex a lot more and really get to grips with it.

I cut my photographic teeth on Rolleiflex and Rolleicord cameras. Great machines but limited by todays standards. A good viewpoint but seems a little soft over all. May be hand holding or may be scanning?

I had one of thiose Xenotar lensed Rolleis it also had a small exposure meter built into it. I loved it until I got hooked on Mamiyas.

This picture is a nice idea but I doubt that scanning in will maintain the original quality by the time it is uploaded here. I also wouldn't be at f2.8 for this kind of a shot and I doubt your shutter speed is correct either. Do you mean 1/60sec? Anyway a tripod is the answer to 1/60sec and given that a slower speed might otherwise catch movement in the walkers I suppose f2.8 is a compromise.
