Turn the filter by hand. It should be as tight as you can get it by hand. You know which way is tighten, right?

Step 1. Place hand on oil filter.
Step 2. Grip oil filter with said hand.
Step 3. Rotate filter in clockwise direction.

There are a lot of places it could be comming from, beings you just had a seal replaced I would take it back to the shop that did it and have them take a look. Maybe they screwed something up?

Aside from that, I would suggesting that you check the oil pressure sending unit and the oil filter adapter plate for leaks of that volume.

If the filter was tightened with a filter wrench, then chances are the seal is split; causing the leak.
