Two options:

Turn down brightness.

Turn off Active Dlighting -> This actually makes you guess wrong the exposure from your JPGS

I would agree with this recommendation.  Unless you shoot jpg or use Nikon Capture NX2 to process your photos I can't think of any good reason to have Active D-Lighting turned on in the camera.

I suppose one could argue that when shooting raw it will give you a preview on your camera LCD of what is possible in post processing.  But having it turned on also affects things like your camera buffer so I never have it turned on.
