In Estonian Wikipedia we have a copyright exemption
photos of buildings, statues etc., whose authors have not died
recently (70 years after death hasen't passed yet).
These photos are tagged with http://et.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mall:KunstiteoseFoto.
And these photos can't be uploaded to Commons, because of no Freedom
of Panorama in Estonian Copyright Law:
So some photos of monuments will be ok for Estonian Wikipedia, but not
ok for Wikimedia Commons.
