If active D-lighting is not working for you, there is another in-camera option.
I see that you list Capture NX and View NX in your profile. Included with these programs is the Picture Control Utility.
You can create a custom Picture Control that can be loaded into the camera. Using View NX go to File > Launch Picture Control Utility.
Load one of your high contrast images and make adjustments (I would create a custom curve) to get the look that you like. Then click on New... and give your new picture control a name. Now you will be able to load it to the camera or apply it to images in Capture or View NX.
