use proper reflections instead of relying on material highlights.
material higlights will always be round spots, the specularity settings will just change the size/sharpness of the spot.

for proper "highligts" you will need an object to reflect.. Like those white canvases that you see in proper photo shoots.

Terribly boring signature.

Ok, thanks - i'm gonna use this technique from now on. Also wanted to ask if you know how to exclude an object from reflections/refractions of the second one but appear in reflections of the third at the same time - kind of a riddle, isn't it? :)
