What do you feel the following sentence, focusing on the word "subtle"?
"The background is a very subtle shade of blue."
In this case, subtle=微妙 or 巧妙?I can see the both meanings on the dictionary. If it means 微妙, its blue is not good. But if it means 巧妙, its blue is good.

Subtleの意味を辞書で引くと「微妙」と「巧妙」が出てきますが、上記の文ではどちらに当てはまるのでしょうか。どちらが当てはまるかによって、意味が逆になってしまうと思うのですが...((。_。).。o?
