I don't want to nitpick, but there are some tricky situations.
In the case of the Eiffel Tower: Eiffel died in 1923, more than 70 years
ago, so pictures from a "bare" Eiffel Tower *in daylight* can be free.
But pictures from the Eiffel Tower when it's illuminated by night cannot
be free... thanks to the copyright an artist owns on this "artwork".
Yes.. And some of my pictures taken in Paris were deleted from Commons :-)
By the way: tourists from countries with which the country they visit
signed he copyright protection treaties (Berne conventions and WIPO
conventions), with some exeptions, should also follow local law of the
country of origin even if they are about to upload the pictures after
coming back to their countries.
So one must also consider the case when a building is
the support for an
artwork from an artist that is *not* dead more than 70 years ago...
Or you have a building which was renovated, but not exactly as it was
original, but with some original "improvements" of the conptemporary
