Cliché: what's wrong with this picture?

Meaning: something’s wrong here or what are you missing? Alternative use*.
Rewrite 1: what do I see that you don’t?
Rewrite 2: What’s missing from this
Rewrite 3: This picture’s got four sides and you only see three.
Rewrite 4: who said there is something wrong with this picture?
Rewrite 5: What isn’t in this picture that should be?

Comment: This rewrite presented some challenges. Recasting the idea isn’t as simple as it looks.
