name that leak: oil pump, valve cover, or...?

I'd done my VC gaskets (rubber type not paper) not so long ago, dunno if I over tightened them or what but they weap a bit - mostly if the car sits for long periods (normal). I did go back thru them and tightened a few.

But this leak irks me, and I'm thinking it's no the VC unless it's from the upper rear corner which I'd find odd:

Is it the oil pump? Or, something from the top portion of the engine coming down?? 7th Fetzer Valve maybe???
