This filter doesn't use O-rings for sealing. Each end is an inverted flare fitting and the flare is what does the sealing. The crimped end is the outlet on the filter, so as long as you have the line going to the engine on the right side, (which it looks like you do) the flow is correct.

It looks correct, but, the filter should have an arrow showing which way the flow goes through it. You can look for that to make sure.
