A contrast is a marked difference. " stark contrast to the luxury they formerly enjoyed."

2. juxtaposition of different things: an effect created by placing or arranging very different things such as colors, shades, or textures next to each other. "These poems have a mature voice when contrasted with her earlier work."

3. degree of lightness and darkness: the difference, or the use of differences, between the lightest and the darkest parts of something, e.g. to create a special effect in a painting, photograph, or television image
To differentiate.
