Two short-lived variables

Lifetime should not influence readability. I almost always put things into variables not just for readability but that it makes it easier to debug.


OutputImage(file, allFaces.Where(f => f.Proportion > double.Parse(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["LowerBound"].ToString()) && f.Proportion < double.Parse(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["UpperBound"].ToString())).ToList().OrderBy(f => f.Proportion).ThenByDescending(f => f.Rectangle.Height).FirstOrDefault());

I do have a penchant for extension methods. As in:

var face = allFaces
  .AnyBetween(f => f.Proportion, "LowerBound".AppSetting().to_f(), "UpperBound".AppSetting().to_f())
  .OrderBy(f => f.Proportion)
  .ThenByDescending(f => f.Rectangle.Height)
OutputImage(file, face);

As bizarre as it is to extend string, I find it a lot more readable.

The ToList() seems superfluous. Not sure you want to output an image if no images meet the selection criteria. I might move FirstOrDefault into OutputImage(file, face.FirstOrDefault()); as well, who knows, the way you get the faces might be re-usable.

I leave it to the reader to figure out to_f, AnyBetween, and AppSettings Should be obvious.
