Opposite coloured bishops are often draws but here you also have the Rooks on and black has an advanced passed pawn. White has a king side pawn majority and blacks e ang g pawns are weak.
Its black to move so he could try
35. ... Rd8; 36. Bf3 ... Rd2; 37. RXR ... cd;
and now black has 6 moves to bring his king up to c7, queening, winning the white B and the game.
Meanwhile white will try and win the e or g pawn and push his g and h pawns.
38. h4 .. gh 39. KXh .. Kc2; 40. g4 .. Kd6; 41. g5
and now the black king must go to the king side to stop the g pawn.
41.. Ke7 (if Kd7 42. Bh5) 42. Kh5 .. Kf6; 43. Kh6 .. Bf8+;
44. Kh7 .. Bg7; 45. Bh5 .. Kf1; 46. e4 .. and the black B falls.
This is just one possible line and, as it loses for black perhaps he should not exchange rooks although I have difficulty seeing that as being worse for white. I am sure someone better than I can pull this to bits and give a way for black to win or salvage the game.
