Diesel exhaust smoke

So, my yanmar diesel behaved pretty well (for all of 6 or so hours I used it so far), not much smoke at all, may be just a bit during warm-up. Today I did a full service - replaced all fluids, filters etc. Once I started the engine - it looked like there is a fire or something - lots and lots of smoke out of the tailpipe. And, while it went down some in a few minutes, it really did not go away. I can't figure out what color it is - white, grey, blue (not black, thats all I know).

Anyway - what the heck could I have done that made it do that?
