The Baptism of Jesus

What is the major difference between the narration of the Baptism of Jesus in the Gospels of Mark and Luke?

While there are some differences before and after the event, the MAJOR difference is that in the Gospel of Mark it is very clearly John the Baptist who baptises Jesus, in the Gospel of Luke we are not told who baptised Jesus (In Luke, John is in prison in 3:20 and Jesus is baptised in 3:21-22)
