If you examine the layer you are clipping to... It is a "ring" not a filled shape. Therefor the "ring" is what is shown when the clip is applied.

If you want the "pic-1-min" layer to fill the interior of the shape, you need to apply it as a clipping mask to a solid shape (a filled rectangle), not a "hollow" shape.

Notice the difference....

Clipping masks in Photoshop are only applied to the visible pixels on the layer they are being clipped to.
