Anamika - how did you load the image into the first axes? If you are using GUIDE, you can save the image to the handles structure (see guidata for details) within the callback (or whatever) that loads the image into the first image. Then, in the button callback, just access the image from handles and load it into the second axes.
See this example for a question that is similar to yours.

Use getframe() and take the cdata field:
% Create sample data.
z = peaks(64);
% Get image from the axes container.
f = getframe(gca)
thisImage = f.cdata;
Of course it's best if you just use the original data, like Geoff suggested, if you can, but sometimes that's not convenient if you have to pass the array way down deep into a call stack. Using setappdata/getappdata is not much more onerous than the code I gave, but you must remember to call setappdata whenever you put new stuff into the axes, and I think you'd end up having to call getframe anyway if you wanted to capture any graphics you put into the overlay above the image.
