Yes, I quite enjoy photography as a hobby.

Not likely. I tried using Hugin a year or two ago and experienced
unexpected crashes, bad results, and not being able to figure some
things out. My results are of course my own and I know there are people
who have had good success with Hugin, but I tried to use it for both HDR
and panoramic processing and never got results I found satisfactory.
After about two weeks of experimentation, I just gave up, waiting and
hoping that someone from PLUG would come along and do a talk and
demonstration to show me what I missed :)

So yeah, this topic is interesting to me, but no, I have not had success
with Hugin.

Kind regards,
