WHY IS THERE A SMALL AMOUNT OF SMOKE COMING OUT FROM UNDER MY HOOD WHEN I AM IDLING AT A LIGHT?

2006 Infiniti M35 • 83,000 miles

I just noticed in the past few days after driving on a highway and then exiting and driving on local streets that when I idle by a traffic light there is a small amount of smoke coming out from under the hood. We just had the oil changed a week ago, could that have anything to do with it, meaning did they forget to do something that would cause this?
I can lift up the hood and look underneath when the car is shut off and it is not smoking or hot at all. Any ideas?

Sounds like oil or coolant burning off something your going to have to get in there and really look and see if oil was spilt or is leaking somewhere.
