Default B7 S4 oil leaks...

Was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what this oil pattern might reveal. I had the valve-cover gaskets done a few months ago by an indy shop. Or was told they were done. Doesn't mean, of course, they were done correctly. Or were done at all. It's a 2006 with 90K-plus miles. The two patterns are the same leak, just parked in a slightly different spot. Any ideas welcomed and very appreciated.

I can confirm you have an oil leak, there is so much crap, covers, plastic bits, and steering arms, under the car this pattern means nothing. I had an issue with the oil cooler mounted very low but near the front on the passenger side on a 4.2 liter. The o rings just fail. I was able to get mine serviced by a shade tree type guy. The dealer wanted to pull the engine. He removed the front wheel, fender liner, and all the lower covers until he could get to it. Still cost almost $1000 all in labor. The o-ring set was $3.00 or some pathetically small amount.
