Duplicate the layer “duplicate circle” and name it “duplicate circle 90″. Rotate the layer with 90 degrees choosing Edit > Transform > Rotate 90° CW and set the opacity (in the Layers Tab) to 18%. After this step you should obtain the next result:

Step 6

Above the layer “duplicate circle 90″ make a new layer and draw a rectangle inside this new layer. Name the new layer “rectangle”. Set the rectangle color to black (double click on the “Layer Thumbnail” in the Layers Tab and set the black color in the window that appears):

Step 7

Right click in the Layers Tab and select Rasterize Layer (do this to manipulate easier the rectangle). Using the Elliptical Marquee Tool (M) (select that in the Tools Tab), delete an area like in the next picture:

rectangle delete area 1

With the same tool delete an area like this:

rectangle delete area 2

Make same thing on the right side of the rectangle, and the result:
