Not entirely sure but it may be a fisheye portrait composited over a 360 panorama... check out this image/thread for some details on the effect. Hugin panorama photo stitcher may also be helpful.

Stereographic projection from a stitched panorama of 32 images. Had to watch my step carefully with the cliff just 3 feet away.

I just came across a photo using this technique this morning. It's very eye catching and I really like it. I will look into the links on it's creation. Can it only be done with a fish-eye lens??

Oh, that's cool!!
It took me a while to find the polar coordinates filter in Elements (the "help" function tells you what something is but not where to find it!).
Great... now I have ANOTHER thing to tinker with when I should be getting other things done!!!
According to the unhelpful 'help' entry, this is a " cylinder anamorphosis—art popular in the 18th century—in which the distorted image appears normal when viewed in a mirrored cylinder."
Anybody got a mirrored cylinder to try it?

Jaywes, no need for a fisheye. I had to give this a go after reading it yesterday, so I tried it with a couple old landscapes I had on hand. I didn't really take the time to blend properly, but the technique is easy enough to achieve!Name:  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1337965757.463595.jpg

OK ok, I will give it a go with some of my panoramas. I have one that is just way to long to realistically display on standard computer monitors. This affect would be great for it.

As a kid I had a book that featured such illustrations and came with a piece of aluminum (or similar) foil you could roll up in a tube to un-distort the images.
