looks like your lens has cast a shadow when you used the flash.
solution move back abit or get a sb800

The built in flash is in a position that the lens is in the path of the light,

Experiment with this, I am only guessing.
The lens hood is to block light from the front to prevent lens flare
and only makes the lens bigger and thus casts a bigger shadow.

Looks like the lens hood is in action, built in flash generally covers up to 28mm IIRC, anything wider, you need an external speedlight.

if you're using the D70 with the build in flash and the 18-70 lens kit with lens hood on, confirm it is the lens hood. I've tried it and confirmed it. I think ortega and espn are both right. When I'm shooting at a subject at least 2m away and the lens is anything other than 18mm, it is OK.

Yah its the d70 with kit lens... So it that case I have to watch out for it in the mean time... until I get an external flash unit.
Then its time to buy buy buy haahaa
