How do you judge the amount of orange peel? To much, to little or spot on?

It's a range one looks for like paint overspray, sound deadener application or the amount of gloss or flatness in some of the semi-gloss finishes .

Thanks everyone.  My problem is that when my car was painted the orange peel was heavier in some areas and in others the paint was pretty slick.  Possibly due to my smaller air compressor.  Overall I am happy with the paint but am in a situation due to the slicker part of the painted areas.  I sanded down the heavy peel to a more reasonable appearance.  I do have orange peel but just not over the entire car.  For instance,  somehow the side scoops look pretty slick.  I just can't justify going back and respraying these areas again.
