Shouldn't matter. Use fans to draw out overspray to avoid dieback (dry overspray falling onto the freshly painted surface and making it "sandy". Based on your photos it looks like you don't have that issue, but watch out for it when shooting larger pieces (more paint in the air) Also, aim away from the booth walls with the gun air blast, as you can kick up dust/dried overspray on the walls.

I'm sure you've read Dan H's tips on color sanding and buffing. A painters secret weapon. That's how all the high end cars get that finish. It doesn't come out of the gun that way! (A run is easier to fix than orange peel. Go for good flow out.). Ironically, you may find your best finishes on the surfaces you paint upside down (or nearly so) due to no dieback and better flow out!
