I also think that it’s OK to go to the ceiling, I do it myself.
However, going up to the ceiling and then go down again 30cm to the left does not seem resonable to me.
You do not free any wall space, you consume it, and the suction will be lower than if you go direct.
So for equipment further away and spread around the shop, use the ceeling (or close to the floor) to save walll space.
But for the planer in the picture and the duct fan in that location, I would have gone as short as possible. Maybe a y-joint directly on the hose (if you are able to mount the blast-gate).
For the rest of the tools, I would go ceeling if there are some distance.
