class ConfigWrapper
    public static double LowerBound { get { return double.Parse(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["LowerBound"].ToString()); } }
    public static double UpperBound { get { return double.Parse(ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["UpperBound"].ToString()); } }


var face = allFaces.Where(f => f.Proportion > lowerBound && f.Proportion < upperBound).ToList()
                   .OrderBy(f => f.Proportion).ThenByDescending(f => f.Rectangle.Height).FirstOrDefault();
OutputImage(file, face);

Wrap the config so that you can be sure it's always accessed correctly, and can potentially do lazy loading and data validation. This also makes changing hard coded app.config settings into user configurable ones later on a lot less painful.

Unless I was doing something that LINQ couldn't translate to SQL or that caused it to do something terribly inefficient, I'd drop the `ToList()` in the middle of the method chain as useless overhead.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
