-go in your material attrubute and lower the reflection till you get stg nice.

-for your shadow, go in your light attribute play with the attributes under raytrace shadow or dept map shadow depending on what king of light you chose.

hope this helped!

HOLY CRAP you have a nice comp. A bit better then mine! I dont see that often. Yes, it should take that long. You cant expect everything to render in 5 mins, and looking at all of those reflections, I would say that is a bit shorter then it would take my comp.
