I own Lightroom 5.7.1. I enjoy working with HDR photography, and I know it is only available in LR 6. Does that mean for me to have & use this feature, I have to purchase LR 6?

Correct. Lightroom 6 is a paid upgrade. You can purchase the upgrade for Lightroom here: https://www.adobe.com/products/catalog/software._sl_id-contentfilter_sl_catalog_sl_software_sl_mostpopular.html Click [Buy] then select “Upgrade” and your prior version to get the upgrade price.

Or, if you want Photoshop & Lightroom plus additional CC features, this Photography membership is your best bet: https://www.adobe.com/creativecloud/photography.html
