I made the happy accident of cutting my oranges in half with the stem and navel pointing up and down. I also cut a few with the navel and stems pointing right and left. I found that the oranges that I sliced with the navels pointing left and right on my cutting board, looked more pleasing. This is just a preference and there is no right or wrong way to do this.
