The contrast is also higher, which improves fine detail.

Lucas Cranach the Younger was a painter and designer of woodcuts to illustrate and decorate literature. He was born in Wittenberg on 4 October 1515 and died on 23 January 1586. Trained with his father, Lucas Cranach the Elder (q.v.), whose workshop he took over and whose mark, the winged serpent, he adopted. He was mayor of Wittenberg in 1565. His early paintings are difficult to distinguish from those of his father, whose polished style he perpetuated, and those of his elder brother, Hans Cranach (c. 1513-37). Source: British Museum.
